The Complete Writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne
Manse Edition, 22 volumes (complete)
Pub. Houghton Mifflin, Boston/ New York

Three-quarters bound in red Morocco leather over marbled boards, with marbled end papers and gilt top edge. Gilt spines with raised bands. Duodecimo (7 3/4" x 5 1/4"). Illustrated throughout the set.


Good condition, noting some wear to the edges of the covers. Though the binding is sturdy across the set, there is a slight lean to the latter third of the volumes when set upright that suggests they may have been shelved at an angle for a time.
