James Fenimore Cooper
The Complete Works of J. Fenimore Cooper (32 volumes, Leather-Stocking Edition)
Putnam The Knickerbocker Press, New York, 1895. The limited edition (884 of 1000 sets) of The Complete works of Cooper in 32 volumes. As typical with 19th century sets there were different bindings offered by the publisher using the same sheets. A near fine set with light rubbing to spines of some volumes. Burgundy cloth with contrasting textures-- spine is in a creped surface and the covers are matching crepe pattern separating from a flat surface by a gilt double rule line. Spine titles are gold stamped on green leather. All books numbered 884 by publisher. Unique steel engravings by F T Richards on frotispieces of each volume, heavily stamped on Japanese Vellum. Not dated but various listings and library holdings put this set from between 1893-1896. Protected with tissue titles printed in red. Top Edge Gilt, rough cut fore and bottom edges. A wonderful set that presents extremely well on the shelf-- rich colors. Naturally includes Coopers greatest achievements, The Last of the Mohicans, The Deerslayer, The Pathfinder and others. See my photos to see the colors and design. I can send additional photos of individual volumes as needed. Books are in my possession and will ship well packed in sturdy cardboard. Shipping for all books is a flat $50 (media mail only) and will be shipped in multiple boxes to avoid damage. No international orders. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Nightshade Booksellers [Atlanta, GA, U.S.A.]
