Leatherstocking Tales (Volume 1. The Deerslayer: or, The First War-Path; Volume 2. The Pathfinder: or, The Inland Sea; Volume 3. The Last of the Mohicans; Volume 4. The Pioneers, or The Sources of the Susquehanna; Volume 5. The Prairie)
Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard. 1848, 1848, 1849, 1848, 1849 (but maybe all 1848?). Early reprint of the first collected edition. Five volumes. Publisher's uniform brown cloth stamped in blind and titled in gilt. Each title is two volumes in one. Three volumes have the ownership signature of Thos. Sackett dated in 1848 (including one of the 1849 volumes), corners bumped and worn, some erosion to the cloth on the spine with minor loss at the spine ends, considerable foxing, but a handsome, about very good set, and very uncommon. OCLC locates three different printings of sets of The Leatherstocking Tales published before 1850, all by this publisher, and each set in five volumes: 1843, 1846, 1849. Each set is held in only one location (all three at the American Antiquarian Society). At any rate a scarce early collected set. .
