Nathaniel Hawthorne; Sophia Peabody Hawthorne (ed.)
Passages from the American Note-Books of Nathaniel Hawthorne
London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1868. Cloth. Good. 7.5" by 4.75". None. A second edition of Nathaniel Hawthorne's American Note-Books. Nathaniel Hawthorne was an American novelist and short story writer. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic Movement and, more specifically, dark romanticism. His themes often centre on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. His published works include novels, short stories, and a biography of his friend Franklin Pierce. Hawthorne's American Note-Books were collated by his widow, Sophia Peabody Hawthorne. The works were taken from notebooks, scrapbooks, and diaries left to his family after his death in 1864. Sophia added parts of letters to the journals, and left out parts that may be considered impolite to publish in cases where they referred to living people. In a cloth binding with gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. Externally, slightly worn with slight bumping and rubbing to extremities. Internally generally firmly bound, with pages 99-111 partially detached. Pages slightly age toned to edges with the occasional spot. Good
