EDITOR'S PREFACE



D R. TANS E L E'S definitive descriptions of two important collec-
tions in the Howe Library are now before the public, and I can add
little to his comments about the books and manuscripts.
Since their acquisition, our friends in the Howe Society have enabled
us to buy pieces peripheral to very comprehensive garnerings by Parkman
Dexter Howe. Perhaps the major piece missing from the Hawthorne
collection is John Camden Hotten's piracy Pansie: A Fragment. The Last
Literary Effort of Nathaniel Hawthorne, London [ 1864]. It was gathered by
Mr. Howe, but when his children agreed to sell the Library to the Univer-
sity of Florida, they asked to keep, each one, a fondly regarded book or
manuscript they were accustomed to see on their father's shelves. One of
Mr. Howe's daughters selected Pansie as her keepsake. Since then, we
have seen this elusive piece in booksellers' catalogues three times, and
three times we have telephoned for it and been told it was sold. Per-
haps this doleful message will reach a dealer or a generous donor with a
spare copy.
The very wide span of our Hawthornes is complemented by an un-
usual number of significant inscriptions, most of which we have repro-
duced within the text. The complete text of the holograph manuscript of
"The Celestial Rail-road" used by the printer is here reproduced for the
first time; it is the longest and probably most valuable manuscript in the
Library.
As Dr. Tanselle points out, we can still add to our Melvilles, especially
among the English publications, and we will draw upon the treasury of
our friends for that. Our double-faced manuscript has its own interest
and pictorial appeal.
Our association with Dr. Tanselle has been a happy and most profita-
ble one; he is a generous task-master and teacher, and his meticulous
work gladdens an editor's heart.

THE SEVEN VAGABONDS.


As the beggar had nothing to object 4to e n
cadi, he now produced a small buff leather bag, tied up
carefully with a shoe string. When this was opened,
there appeared a very comfortable treasure of silver
coins, of all sorts and sizes, and I even fancied that I
saw, gleaming among them, the golden plumage of that
rare bird in our currency, the American Eagle. In this
precious heap was my bank note deposited, the rate of
exchange being considerably against me. His wants
being thus relieved, the destitute man pulled out of his
pocket an old pack of greasy cards, which had probably
contributed to fill the buff leather bag, in more ways
than one.
Come,' said he, I spy a rare fortune in your face,
and for twenty-five cents more, I'll tell you what it is.'
I never refuse to take a glimpse into futurity; so after
shuffling the cards, and when the fair damsel had cut
them, I dealt a portion to the prophetic beggar. Like
others of his profession, before predicting the shadowy
events that were moving on to meet me, he gave proof
of his preternatural science, by describing scenes through
which I had already passed. Here let me have credit
for a sober Act. When the old man had read a page in
his book of fate, he bent his keen gray eyes on mine,
and proceeded to relate, in all its minute particulars, what
was then the most singular event of my life I it was .
one which I had no purpose to disclose, till the general
unfolding of all secrets; nor would it be a much stranger
instance of in&dlible knowledge, or fortunate conjecture, t '.
if the beggar were to meet me in the street to-day, and
repeat word for word, the page which I have here

FOREWORD



T HE COLLECTION of Nathaniel Hawthorne formed by Park-
man Howe is one of the glories of the Howe Library and places him
in the line of distinguished Hawthorne collectors-a line extending
farther back than for most American authors and including Charles B.
Foote, William Harris Arnold, and George M. Williamson in the nine-
teenth century, J. Chester Chamberlain and Stephen H. Wakeman in
the early twentieth century, and Carroll A. Wilson and C. Waller Barrett
in the mid-twentieth century. The preeminent Hawthorne collector
today, C. E. Frazer Clark,Jr. (whose collection is the most comprehensive
ever assembled), called Parkman Howe "the 'other' Hawthorne collec-
tor" and "the best Hawthorne collector I know" (see his presentation
inscriptions to Howe in NH 241, 242, and 243 below).
The strength of Howe's Hawthorne collection (as now supplemented
by other University of Florida copies) can be suggested by noting that of
the thirty-seven titles in section A (separate publications) of Clark's
excellent Hawthorne bibliography (NH 245), only two are not present
in any form (Pansie, 1864 [which Howe did in fact own, but which has
remained in his family] and The Yam of a Yankee Privateer, 1926), and eight
others are present in second printings or editions rather than in firsts,
four of them from Hawthorne's lifetime (Peter Parley's Universal History,
1837; Time's Portraiture, 1838; Liberty Tree, 1841; Tanglewood Tales, 1853)
and four from later (Septimius Felton, 1872; The Dolliver Romance, 1876; Love
Letters of Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1907; Letters of Hawthorne to William D. Tick-
nor, 191 o). Of the eighty-nine titles in Clark's section C (first-appearance
contributions to books and pamphlets), the collection has all but twenty-
eight; of the one hundred eleven in section D (first-appearance contribu-
tions to magazines and newspapers), the collection has all but thirty-
five. The latter figure is impressive-more so than might appear at
7

first-when one considers the difficulty of locating many nineteenth-
century periodicals and their frequent neglect by collectors and dealers.
(Other books by and about Hawthorne, not recorded in this catalogue,
are of course available in the University of Florida libraries; this catalogue
draws on University of Florida holdings outside the Howe collection only
for items that are given entries in the first four sections of Clark's bibliog-
raphy or that are otherwise particularly significant.)
What this record means, in other words, is that the Howe collection
contains such rarities as first printings of Fanshawe (1828), The Sister Years
(1839), The Sunday School Society's Gift (1842), and The Celestial Rail-Road
(1843). It also holds significant successive editions of some titles: for
example, the first, second, and third American editions of Twice-Told Tales
(see NH 24, 50, 98), the first and second American editions of Mossesfrom
an Old Manse (NH 84, 111), the first, second, third, and fourth editions of
The Scarlet Letter (NH 92-95), the first and second editions of True Stories
from History and Biography (NH 96, 100), and the first English and Amer-
ican printings of The Snow-Image (NH 102, 103), The Blithedale Romance
(NH 105, 106), The Marble Faun (NH 118, 119), and Our Old Home (NH
138, 139). Some copies are in particularly fine condition, such as the first
editions of The Scarlet Letter (NH 92) and of Doctor Grimshawe's Secret (NH
181). Howe's attention to periodicals is a distinctive feature of his collect-
ing, and he brought together some remarkable sets of scarce periodicals
in the original wrappers: all thirty-six numbers of The American Magazine
of Useful and Entertaining Knowledge, which Hawthorne and his sister edited
for six months in 1836 (NH 19); the first nine numbers of Voices of the
True-Hearted, one of which contains a reprinting of "The Celestial Rail-
road" (NH 80); all seven numbers (and the extra) of The Weal-Reaf, the
paper of the 1860 Essex Institute Fair, to which Hawthorne contributed
(NH 124); the seven parts of The Atlantic Almanac, one of which includes
a passage from Hawthorne's English notebooks (NH 148).
In addition, the collection contains some manuscript material of great
interest, the principal instance being Hawthorne's fair copy of "The
Celestial Rail-road" (NH MS 1), one of the most famous of his shorter
pieces. This manuscript of twenty-one pages, reproduced here in its
entirety, is the copy used by the printers of the United States Magazine and








NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE 9

Democratic Review and has the names of the typesetters marked on it.
Present also is the copy of The Token for 1833 in which Hawthorne entered
marginal revisions for "The Seven Vagabonds" and "The Canterbury
Pilgrims," two of his sketches that appeared anonymously in the volume
(NH 12). Two textual corrections in Hawthorne's hand also appear in
the copy of Mosses from an Old Manse that Hawthorne presented to the
prominent man of letters George W. Curtis (NH 84). Six other books
contain Hawthorne's presentation inscriptions: the first edition of Twice-
Told Tales to the Maine Senator Reuel Williams (NH 24), the enlarged
edition to Hawthorne's cousin Maria Manning (NH 50), The Blithedale
Romance to the wife of the critic E. P. Whipple (NH 106), The Life of Franklin
Pierce to Mrs.J. C. Bond (NH 108), Transformation to his publisher William
D. Ticknor (NH 118), and Our OldHome to George P. Bradford (NH 138).
Some childhood signatures of Hawthorne are present in a copy of
Montgomery's poems (NH 1), and there is a copy of Mosses from an Old
Manse inscribed by Hawthorne's close friend Horatio Bridge (NH 85).
(All these inscriptions are reproduced here.)
Because the entries below are arranged in a single chronological order-
ing and because the Howe holdings of anthologies and periodicals are
extensive, one can gain a good sense of Hawthorne's career by reading
through the catalogue. The patterns of Hawthorne's contributions to gift
books and periodicals readily stand out; and the fact that over a hundred
of these entries are for publications after Hawthorne's death in 1864 (at
the age of fifty-nine) calls attention to the remarkably protracted process
by which Hawthorne manuscript material reached print-the process
that caused Henry James to declare Hawthorne's "posthumous produc-
tivity almost as active as that of his lifetime." The primary citations in
the entries below are to Clark's bibliography, supplemented by references
to the Hawthorne section of the Bibliography of American Literature and to
descriptions in the Centenary Edition (many of which are formal biblio-
graphical descriptions). One can assume that when single numbers of
periodicals (as opposed to bound volumes) are entered, they are in the
original wrappers; descriptions of binding colors conform to the language
of the Centroid Color Charts; American practice in the placing of com-
mas and periods within quotation marks is followed in connection with









10 PARKMAN DEXTER HOWE LIBRARY

titles but not with inscriptions, quotations from manuscript material, or
readings cited as textual points; and the general titles of multi-volume
editions (like the Centenary Edition) are not placed in quotation marks
except when those titles do not appear on the volumes themselves. The
aim of these entries is to illuminate the Howe (and related University of
Florida) holdings by drawing together information from a variety of
sources; occasionally they also supplement or correct the Clark bibliog-
raphy or the BAL (as in NH 19, 52, 54, 78, 79, 83, 94, 96, 100, 133, 145,
148, 153, 174, 195, 208, 217). I am greatly indebted to Sidney Ives and
Carmen Russell Hurff, who have the Howe Library in their charge at the
University of Florida Library, for their cordial and patient helpfulness.

& Mercein, C. Wiley & Co. Original paper-covered boards, with printed paper
label on spine.
Hawthorne's copy, with his name appearing in five places. At the top of the
front free endpaper appears the ink inscription "Nath! Hathorne. Salem. Jan.
1820." (when Hawthorne would have been fifteen). Below this inscription there
is another ink inscription, apparently made at a later date and using the new
spelling of the name, "Nath Hawthorne." (See illustration below.)







S-/











At the top of the recto of the next leaf is the stamped name "N Hathorne", and
beneath it there is the ink signature "Nath. Hawthorne." in the same hand as
the second one on the preceding leaf. At right angles to this signature (and

partially covered by the "N") is the pencil inscription "Nath! H." (See illustra-
tion below.)


This copy was part of the Hawthorne material that Richard C. Manning sold
by auction on January 28, 1937 (American Art Association-Anderson Gal-
leries sale no. 4296, lot 240).

NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE


This copy has a presentation inscription on the cover from Jonathan Page of
the medical faculty to the Reverend Daniel Gould. The name "Woodman"
(perhaps Moses E.?) is also written on the cover and lined through.

NH 4 Salem Gazette. August 26, 1825. Salem, 1825.
Clark DI. Contains, at the top of the left-hand column of the first page, the
sixteen-line poem "The Ocean" (signed "C.W."). This poem was attributed to
Hawthorne by his later publisher James T. Fields and by his friend Horatio
Bridge (for references, see Clark H 19); if it is indeed Hawthorne's, then this
number of the Gazette contains the first located appearance of Hawthorne in
print. (Earlier pieces have been attributed to him with less authority, and the
publication he himself referred to in an 1819 letter has not been identified.) The
Howe Library holds all the known contemporary reprintings of "The Ocean":
see the entries below for The Garland (1825), The Mariner's Library (1833), sepa-
rate sheet music (1836), and Autumn Leaves (1837).

NH 5 The Garland; or New General Repository of Fugitive Poetry. June,
July, August, 1825. Auburn, N.Y., 1825.
Clark D2. The August number contains "The Ocean" (p. 44), identified as
coming from the Salem Gazette. If this poem is Hawthorne's (see the preceding
entry), this Garland printing is the earliest located magazine appearance of
Hawthorne.
Signature (in the August number) of Robert Barker.

NH 6 Salem Gazette. September 2, 1825. Salem, 1825.
Clark H2I. Contains a 2 1-line poem, "Moonlight" (signed "PS."), at the top
of the left-hand column of the first page. This poem was attributed to Haw-
thorne by George Parsons Lathrop and Horatio Bridge; for a discussion of the
attribution, see Arthur Monke and C. E. Frazer Clark, Jr., "Hawthorne's
'Moonlight,'" Nathaniel Hawthorne Journal 1973, pp. 27-34.

NH 7 Salem Gazette. October 12, 1827. Salem, 1827.
Clark GI8. Contains "The Interrupted Nuptials-A Tale" (signed "N****"),
running from the middle of the first column to just below the middle of the
second column of the first page. The book dealer P K. Foley gave Howe this
copy and expressed the view that "The Interrupted Nuptials" was by Haw-
thorne, suggesting that "N****" could stand for "Nath H"; Howe then asked









PARKMAN DEXTER HOWE LIBRARY


Norman Holmes Pearson, the Hawthorne scholar, for his opinion, and Pearson
replied (in a letter of February 2, 1936, now in the Howe Library) that he felt
"reasonably sure" of Hawthorne's authorship. C. E. Frazer Clark, Jr., discusses
the issue in "'The Interrupted Nuptials': A Question of Attribution," Nathaniel
Hawthorne Journal 197, pp. 49-66. The attribution was rejected by the Centenary
Edition (XI, 407-8).

NH 8 Fanshawe. A Tale. Boston, 1828.
Clark AI.I; BAL 7570; Centenary Edition, III, 317-18. Hawthorne's first book,
copyrighted July 22, 1828, and published (in boards with paper spine label)
anonymously in the last week of October, 1828, partly at Hawthorne's own
expense, by Marsh & Capen of Boston in an edition of i,ooo copies. Although
Hawthorne did not wish his authorship to be known, the notorious rarity of the
book is accounted for not by his suppression of it but by the fact that it did not
sell well and that a substantial part of the edition was still in the Marsh & Capen
warehouse when it burned in 1831. This copy has the dropped type on p. 33,
line 19 ("rom" for "from") but does not have dropped type in "has" on p. 52,
line 34. The last (blank) leaf of the last gathering is missing from this copy (but
the rear free endpaper is present).
Written on the front cover: "Enterprize Library 403 Broadway".

NH 9 S. G. Goodrich, ed. The Token; A Christmas and New Year's Present.
Boston, 1830 [i.e., 1829]
Clark G25; BAL 7571. Contains an unsigned tale, "The Young Provincial"
(pp. 127-45), attributed to Hawthorne by E B. Sanborn in 1898 and in-
cluded in the sixteenth volume of the Autograph Edition of his works in 1900
(Clark B20). If this tale is by Hawthorne, its appearance here would mark the
first of his many contributions to The Token, Samuel G. Goodrich's famous
annual. However, the piece was attributed by two contemporary newspapers to
W. B. O. Peabody, and the attribution to Hawthorne was rejected by the
Centenary Edition (XI, 401).
Signature: "Miss H. Howell."

NH 10 S. G. Goodrich, ed. The Token; A Christmas and New Year's Present.
Boston, 1831 [i.e., 1830]
Clark ci; BAL 7572. Contains "Sights from a Steeple" (pp. 41-51), "The Fated
Family" (pp. 57-82), "The Haunted Quack. A Tale of a Canal Boat-By
Joseph Nicholson" (pp. I 17-37), "The New England Village" (pp. 155-76),









NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE 1/

and "The Adventurer" (pp. I89-212). These pieces are unsigned, except for
the third, signed "Joseph Nicholson"; and only the first, which was collected in
Twice-Told Tales (1837), is certainly by Hawthorne, though "The Haunted
Quack," which was included in the sixteenth volume of the Autograph Edition
of Hawthorne in 19oo (see Clark B20, 014), was accepted as his by the Cente-
nary Edition (XI, 399). Of the other three, only one, "The New England
Village," was included in the Autograph Edition (see Clark B20, G2 I), and the
reasons for rejecting it are given in the Centenary Edition, XI, 406-7. "The
Fated Family" was not attributed to Hawthorne until 19 I, after the Autograph
Edition had appeared, and Moncure D. Conway's argument for it was rejected
by the Centenary editors (XI, 404-5; see Clark G o). "The Adventurer," though
attributed to Hawthorne by Conway in 190r, had been attributed to John Neal
shortly after its publication (and in fact The Token itself implied that Neal was
the author); see the discussion in BAL 7572 and in the Centenary Edition, XI,
401-2.

NH 11 S. G. Goodrich, ed. The Token; A Christmas andNew Year's Present.
Boston, 1832 [i.e., 1831]
Clark c2; BAL 7573. Contains "The Wives of the Dead" (pp. 74-82), "My
Kinsman, Major Molineux" (pp. 89-116), "Roger Malvin's Burial" (pp. 161-
88), "The Gentle Boy" (pp. 193-240), "My Wife's Novel" (pp. 281-315), and
"David Whicher-a North American Story" (pp. 349-72) -all unsigned except
the first, signed "F........," and the second, signed "By the Author of 'Sights
from a Steeple.'" Hawthorne collected the first two (the first of them as "The
Two Widows") in The Snow-Image (1852), the third in Mosses from an Old Manse
(1846), and the fourth in Twice-Told Tales (1837). "My Wife's Novel," attrib-
uted to Hawthorne by F B. Sanborn in 1898 and included in the Autograph
Edition in 1900 (see Clark B20, G20), was attributed to Edward Everett in 1902
and rejected as Hawthorne's by the Centenary Edition (XI, 401). "David
Whicher," attributed to Hawthorne by Irving Richards in 1962 (see Clark G5),
was rejected by the Centenary Edition (XI, 408).

NH 12 S. G. Goodrich, ed. The Token and Atlantic Souvenir. A Christmas
and New Year's Present. Boston, 1833 [i.e., 1832]
Clark c3; BAL 7574. Two copies. Contains "The Seven Vagabonds" (pp. 49-
71), "The Bald Eagle" (pp. 74-89), "A Cure for Dyspepsia" (pp. 93-112), "Sir
William Pepperell" (pp. 124-34), and "The Canterbury Pilgrims" (pp. 153-66)--
all unsigned except the first, signed "By the Author of 'The Gentle Boy,'" and
the fourth, signed "By the Author of'Sights from a Steeple'" and "H********."









18 PARKMAN DEXTER HOWE LIBRARY

The first of these pieces was collected by Hawthorne in the second edition of
Twice-Told Tales (1842) and the last in The Snow-Image (1852), and "Sir William
Pepperell" was included in the 1876 edition of Fanshawe. "The Bald Eagle,"
though attributed to Hawthorne by F B. Sanborn in 1898 and included in the
Autograph Edition of his works in 1900 (Clark B2o), is actually by Longfellow
(see Clark G2 and the Centenary Edition, XI, 401). "A Cure for Dyspepsia,"
attributed to Hawthorne by Moncure D. Conway in 1901 (see Clark o4), was
rejected by the Centenary Edition (XI, 404-5).
One copy, which Howe purchased for $17.50 at the November 19, 1931,
auction of Hawthorne presentation copies (the property of Rebecca B. Man-
ning, Hawthorne's niece) held by the American Art Association-Anderson
Galleries (sale no. 3927, lot 296), has the signature of Rebecca D. Manning of
Salem, Hawthorne's aunt. This copy also contains marginal revisions at thirty-
five points in "The Seven Vagabonds" and at six points in "The Canterbury
Pilgrims"; all of those in the former and four of those in the latter were incorpo-
rated in the texts of these pieces when they were collected in book form. That
these annotations are in Hawthorne's hand has been demonstrated by C. E.
Frazer Clark, Jr., in "New Light on the Editing of the 1842 Edition of Twice-Told
Tales," Nathaniel Hawthorne Journal 1972, pp. 91-139 (which includes a facsimile
reproduction of the entire text of "The Seven Vagabonds" from this copy, along
with two of the annotated pages of "The Canterbury Pilgrims"). See also the
Centenary Edition, IX, 544-45, and XI, 412-13. (One of the annotated pages
of "The Seven Vagabonds" is reproduced above as the frontispiece.) The second
Howe copy is inscribed "Hillsburgh."

the first book appearance of "The Ocean" (see NH 4).

November (pp. 352-58); and "The Story Teller. No. II" (made up of "The

Old Manse (1854).

Hawthorne, with the help of his sister. For an account of this venture and a
reprinting of 142 pieces from the magazine, see Arlin Turner's Hawthorne as
Editor: Selectionsfrom His Writings in The American Magazine of Useful and Entertaining
Knowledge (University, Louisiana, 1941; NH 225). For a nineteenth-century

The copy in black cloth has the signature "Nath. Hawthorne." on the front
free endpaper. A later inscription beneath reads, "Asa P. French from Martha
A. Palmer Oct. I I. 1916." (See illustration opposite.) Howe, in his catalogue of
his collection, made the following comment: "Asa Palmer French was a nephew
of Martha A. Palmer. Martha A. Palmer in turn was a cousin of Mrs. Haw-
thorne. It can be assumed therefore that after Hawthorne's death Mrs. Haw-
thorne gave the book to her cousin, who in turn gave it to her nephew on Oct.
I I, 1916. I purchased it from Goodspeed who bought it from the Asa P French
Estate." It is also possible, of course, that this copy was in Martha Palmer's
possession before Hawthorne's death.
The second Howe copy, the one in grayish blue cloth, bears a presentation
inscription: "Hon Reuel Williams, with the respects of the Author". Williams
was a Senator from Maine (1837-43) and a long-time trustee of Bowdoin
College. (See illustration below.)

MANUSCRIPT



NH MS 1 Printer's-copy holograph manuscript of "The Celestial Rail-road."
[Concord, Mass., 1843]
Five and a half sheets of paper, 16" x o1" trimmed, with each of the five full
sheets folded to form two leaves measuring i o" x 8". Creases show that the entire
manuscript was at one time folded twice more, dividing the longer dimension
of the leaves into thirds. All the sheets except the third are of pale blue wove
paper; the third is off-white. Hawthorne wrote in black ink on the rectos and
versos of the first ten leaves and on the recto only of the eleventh leaf, forming
twenty-one pages of writing. He numbered the rectos (1, 3, 5, and so on through
2 I) and also indicated the order of the folded sheets by marking each sheet after
the first-e.g., "(2d sheet)". The text is a fair copy, with only a few alterations
entered on it, such as the correction of "unamity" to "unanimity" (p. 7, line 2)
and the change of "truth" to "right" (p. [ 16], line 21 -this change being made
for consistency, since "Stick-to-the-right" had appeared earlier). This holograph
manuscript served as printer's copy for the printers of the United States Magazine
and Democratic Review, where the piece appeared in May, 1843 (NH 62). The
names of the compositors are written on it at the points where their stints began:
p. i, upper left, "Gilman" (in ink, along with "sig. 45"); p. 5, line 3, "Whipple"
(ink); p. 9, end of paragraph, "Gilman" (ink); p. 13, top, "Whipple" (pencil);
p. [18], top, "Stevens" (pencil).
"The Celestial Rail-road" is one of the best-known and most widely circulated
of the group of sketches that Hawthorne wrote soon after his marriage in 1842
to Sophia Peabody. A satirical allegory drawing on Pilgrim's Progress, it was
immediately popular and was reprinted from the United States Magazine and
Democratic Review by at least nine other periodicals before its appearance in
Mosses from an Old Manse (1846). It also appeared in an unauthorized pamphlet
edition in the fall of 1843, a few months after its original publication, and was
set in type as a pamphlet at least a dozen more times in the next quarter-century.
Some of these editions-such as that of the American Sunday-School Union in
the United States and Houlston in England-went through many printings. In
establishing the text of the piece for the Centenary Edition (1974) of Mossesfrom
an Old Manse, the editors used the Howe manuscript as copy-text; they provide
a description of it at X, 575-76.
The manuscript is now bound in full leather, with four portraits of Haw-
thorne, representing different periods of his life, inserted (before and after a
handwritten title leaf, and following the fourth and eighth leaves of the manu-

script). After the last manuscript leaf are five printed leaves, inlaid and bound
in, constituting pp. 515-24 of the United States Magazine and Democratic Review
for May, 1843, and thus displaying the first printed appearance of the piece.

few copies of this work, with considerable additions, will be published in 2 vols.
under the title of Peter Parley's Universal History. It will be executed in very
beautiful style." This statement perhaps reflects the publisher's intention to
continue selling the two-volume Universal History as well; there is no question
that the original publication of the Universal History (deposited for copyrightJuly
29, 1837) preceded that of the Common School History (deposited for copyright

in print: it first appeared in the 1832 Token and was collected in Twice-Told Tales
(1837). For this publication Hawthorne wrote a new preface and abridged the

NH 81 [Horatio Bridge] Journal of an African Cruiser ... By an Officer of
the U S. Navy. Edited by Nathaniel Hawthorne. New York, 1845.
Clark AI4.I.a,; BAL 7597. The presumed first printing (Clark), BAL printing
A, with the four-line copyright notice, the printer's and stereotyper's imprints
at the foot of the copyright page, and the table of contents preceding the preface.
Clark wrapper A, BAL wrapper I, with three titles listed under the heading
"Library of American Books" on the back wrapper. The "Officer of the U. S.
Navy," not named on the title page, was Horatio Bridge, classmate of Haw-
thorne at Bowdoin and later his brother-in-law, who had put up the money
(without Hawthorne's knowledge) to guarantee the publisher of Twice-Told Tales
against loss. (Hawthorne later dedicated The Snow-Image [1851] to Bridge;
for Bridge's reminiscences of Hawthorne, see NH 194 below.) This book was
No. I in Wiley & Putnam's series "Library of American Books," which was to
include, within the following twelve months, Poe's Tales and The Raven and Other
Poems, Hawthorne's Mosses from an Old Manse, and Melville's Typee. It was
published in late June, 1845. For Hawthorne's letter of March 2, 1845, to Evert
A. Duyckinck (editor of the series), offering him the book, see Centenary Edi-
tion, XVI, 82-83; in it Hawthorne explains that he has "re-modelled the style"
(and see the other index references to Bridge in that volume).

NH 82 Rufus W. Griswold, ed. Scenes in the Life of the Saviour: By the Poets
and Painters. Philadelphia, 1846.
Clark H3I, H32; BAL IV, 32. Two copies, one in dark green cloth with white
coated endpapers and the other in very dark red cloth with endpapers printed
in an overall pattern of dots and asterisks. Contains "Walking on the Sea"
(pp. 95-96) and "The Star of Calvary" (pp. 164-67), both signed "Haw-
thorne." That these poems should be considered Nathaniel Hawthorne's was
suggested by George Parsons Lathrop in 1898; but they were probably the work
of Walter Hawthorne, a writer known by Griswold (see the discussion in Clark
H3I).

NH 83 United States Magazine and Democratic Review. January, February,
March, May, June, August, September, 1846.
New York, 1846.

Cf. Clark A36. I (note 2); cf. BAL 7649. These seven numbers contain "Papers
of an Old Dartmoor Prisoner" (respectively, pp. 31-39 [where "Dartmoor" is
printed "Dartmouth" in the title], 97-111, 200-12, 360-68, 457-65, 141-48,
209-17), edited (as stated in print) by Hawthorne. The unnamed author was
Benjamin Frederick Browne (1793-1873), a Salem apothecary who in his youth
had undergone the experiences described here. The memoir of Browne in the
Historical Collections of the Essex Institute for April, 1875 (XIII, 81-89), says that
when Browne showed Hawthorne "the narrative he had written for his own
amusement," Hawthorne "was so much interested in it that he procured its
publication in the 'Democratic Review.'" According to the memoir, "'The
Papers of an Old Dartmoor Prisoner' had such peculiar merits, not merely from
the interesting subject matter but also for the singular skill in narration and
vivacity of style that it seemed as if Nathaniel Hawthorne, their gifted editor,
must have added much from his own genius. But a careful comparison of the
original manuscript with the printed copy shows that the narrative owes nothing
whatever to the accomplishments of the editor except some slight use of the
pruning knife." The "Papers" were brought out in book form in 1926 under the
title The Yarn of a Yankee Privateer, with an introduction by Clifford Smyth and
with Hawthorne's name as editor (but without Browne's name) on the title
page. See Hawthorne's letters to Evert A. Duyckinck printed in Centenary
Edition, XVI, 139-40, 146, 152-54 (as well as the references to Browne indexed
in that volume).

NH 84 Mosses from an Old Manse. New York, 1846.
Clark AI5.i.a,; BAL 7598; Centenary Edition, X, 557-61. The two parts,
originally published in wrappers, bound together in half leather, with only
the front wrapper of Part I included. First printing, with the printer's and
stereotyper's imprints at the foot of the copyright page of both parts, with
p. [212] blank, and with the type corresponding to the points noted in Clark
(p. 122). First state of the front wrapper, with the comma after "well" in the
upper right corner. (For the issue in publisher's cloth, see the next entry.) This
collection, published as Nos. XVII-XVIII of Wiley & Putnam's "Library of
American Books" about June 5, 1846, brings together (with a new prefatory
piece, "The Old Manse") the following twenty-two pieces, of which the Howe
Library contains all but one in their original appearances (indicated by paren-
thetical references without "cf."): "The Birth-Mark" (NH 60), "A Select Party"









:0 PARKMAN DEXTER HOWE LIBRARY

(NH 73; cf. NH 172), "Young Goodman Brown" (NH 17), "Rappaccini's
Daughter" (NH 75), "Mrs. Bullfrog" (NH 21), "Fire-Worship" (NH 67), "Buds
and Bird-Voices" (NH 63), "Monsieur du Miroir" (NH 21), "The Hall of
Fantasy" (NH 58), "The Celestial Railroad" (NH 62; cf. NH 172), and "The
Procession of Life" (NH 61) in Part I; "The New Adam and Eve" (NH 57),
"Egotism; or the Bosom Friend" (NH 59), "The Christmas Banquet" (NH 69),
"Drowne's Wooden Image" (cf. NH 90), "The Intelligence Office" (NH 70),
"Roger Malvin's Burial" (NH 11; cf. NH 65 and 171), "P's Correspondence"
(NH 77), "Earth's Holocaust" (NH 71; cf. NH 140), "The Old Apple Dealer"
(NH 56), "The Artist of the Beautiful" (NH 72), and "A Virtuoso's Collection"
(NH 53; cf. NH 127, 172, and 227) in Part II. All these texts were set from the
original appearances (in which Hawthorne had made some corrections), except
for "Roger Malvin's Burial," which was set from the United States Magazine and
Democratic Review printing of August, 1843 (rather than The Token for 1843).
Presentation copy, inscribed "George W Curtis, from the Author." (See
illustration below.) Curtis was a member of the Brook Farm group, journalist
and author, an editor of Putnam's Monthly Magazine (1855-57), and a long-time
editor of Harper's Weekly (1863-92). This copy also contains two pencil correc-
tions in Hawthorne's hand in "The Old Manse": on p. 19, line 6, "lonely" is
altered to "lovely"; on p. 26, line 12, "magic" is altered to "tranquil". Although
this piece was set from Hawthorne's manuscript, the printed text was not
proofread by Hawthorne, and it contains some three dozen substantive variants
from the manuscript (see the Centenary Edition, X, 541-43, 572-73). Haw-
thorne made revisions in it for the 1854 edition, which includes the corrected
readings "lovely" and "tranquil".








NH 85 Mosses from an Old Manse. New York, 1846.

& Putnam issued the book both in separate wrappered parts and in cloth
volumes containing the two parts bound together.
Inscribed, in Horatio Bridge's hand: "A present from my friend the Author".
(See illustration below. For Bridge's relation to Hawthorne, see NH 81 above.)

set from the original appearances, and Hawthorne engaged in little revision of
them. The book was published by Ticknor, Reed, and Fields at 75 in a printing
of 2,425 copies in the third week of December, 1851 (the copyright notice carries
the date 1851, although the title page is dated 1852).

NH 103 The Snow-Image, and Other Tales. London, 185 .
Clark A19.2.a; BAL 7605. The first English printing. Grayish red ribbed cloth
(Clark's binding C), with a 32-page Bohn catalogue inserted at the end and
Bohn advertisements on the endpapers. The English and American editions
were intended to be simultaneous, but the American edition, though dated 1852
(see the preceding entry), was probably published a few days earlier than the
English. The American edition was the one set from the manuscript supplied
by Hawthorne, and the English edition was set from advance sheets of the
American.


NH 104 Memorial ofJames Fenimore Cooper. New York, 1852.
Clark c24; BAL 7609; Scharnhorst 636. Black ribbed cloth. Edited (according

G. P. Putnam. Contains a letter from Hawthorne to Rufus W. Griswold (p. 33),
dated in print as February 20, 1852, but actually dated December 15, 185 (see
Centenary Edition, XVI, 517, 742). Griswold was one of the organizers (along
with Washington Irving and Fitz-Greene Halleck) of a memorial gathering in
honor of Cooper (who had died on September 14, 1851), originally planned for
December 24, 1851, but not held until February 27, 1852; Hawthorne's letter
was one of the statements read on that occasion. The book, published by
Putnam, was advertised as available in early May, 1852.

Reed, and Fields onJuly 14, 1852 at 75V, on which Hawthorne received a 15%
royalty. The American edition was set from Hawthorne's manuscript.
Presentation copy from Hawthorne to Mrs. E. P Whipple. (See illustration
below.) Bookplate of A. Edward Newton. A photograph of Hawthorne (3/2" x
21/8"), removed from this copy and housed separately in the Howe Library, is
inscribed on the back from E H. [Frederick Hill] Meserve to Newton, February
25, 1922.











NH 107 The Blithedale Romance. [Second American printing]
Boston, 1852.
Clark A20.2.b; cf. BAL 761 I. The second American printing, distinguishable
by the placement of the copyright notice (beginning opposite the third line of
the preface) and by damaged type on pp. 97 and io8 (see preceding entry).
BAL spine imprint A (see preceding entry). A twelve-page catalogue inserted
at back. One of 2,350 copies published on August 12, 1852.


NH 108 Life of Franklin Pierce. Boston, 1852.

at front. Copy 2: like Copy I, except for brownish black wave cloth and the spine
imprint higher (/2" from bottom instead of 3/8"). Copy 3: wrappers, conforming
to Clark's wrapper B and BAL second printing (that is, without the price in the
upper right corner of the front wrapper). Three printings, which have not been
differentiated, were completed on August 31, September 30, and October 4,
1852, with a total of 3,110 copies bound in cloth and 9,790 in wrappers.
Hawthorne was apparently given a royalty of $300 for this campaign biography.
Copy i contains a presentation inscription from Hawthorne to Mrs. J. C.
Bond. (See illustration below.) Copy 3 has the bookplate ofJ. Harsen Purdy
and is the gift of the Howe Society.












Because of Hawthorne's relationship with Pierce (who had been in the class
ahead of Hawthorne at Bowdoin), Howe included in his Hawthorne collection
a signed holograph letter of Pierce, written to W. S. Hoar of Haverhill on May
Io, 1868; the brief note is inscribed on the first and second of the four pages of
a two-leaf fold of wove paper embossed "EP." (leaf size 8" x 5").

NH 109 Grandfather's Stories. Brief Sketch ofAbigail Browne of Salem, Mass.
Boston, 1852.
Tan wrappers. 36 pp. This pamphlet, published by S. K. Whipple, is not by
Hawthorne; but the similarity of its title to Hawthorne's Grandfather's Chair
(1841) has caused it sometimes to be attributed to him.
On the front wrapper of the Howe copy is written in pencil "By Nat!
Hawthorne".

3,000 copies on September 20, 1853, about a month after the English edition

edition). The first printing is identified by the presence of only the stereotyper's
imprint on the copyright page (the printer's imprint was added in the second
printing). Very dark green coarse-ribbed cloth, with sides blind-stamped in the

earlier than the American edition. Smith, Elder and Co., the English publisher,
paid Hawthorne 600 for the British rights.

printing of the American edition, distinguishable by the presence of the preface
preceding the table of contents, by gatherings in eights throughout (though the

signatures are for twelves), and by the presence of signature 1* on I, ix, and of
signature 4* on II, 197. Dark grayish yellowish brown coarse-ribbed cloth with
blind-stamped sides (conforming to Clark's "Ticknor format A"; see Clark,
p. 27); brown coated endpapers; binder's leaf at front and back. Ticknor and
Fields catalogue, dated February, 1860, inserted at back ofVol. I. The American

(Ticknor and Fields) edition, distinguishable by the presence of the table of
contents preceding the preface, by gatherings in eights throughout (as signed),

NH 122 The Marble Faun: or, The Romance of Monte Beni. [Fourth print-
ing?] 2 vols. Boston, 186o.
Clark A23.3.d-f; BAL 7624. The fourth (or possibly fifth or sixth) Ticknor and
Fields printing, with an added "Conclusion" (II, 284-88). This copy conforms
to Clark's plate form D (p. 249), distinguishable in Vol. II by the presence of
the misprint "strangelg" on p. 98 (line 3) as well as of the "Conclusion" and
by the absence of an edition statement on the copyright page and of a comma
after "friend" on p. 9 (line 27). Clark concludes that the fourth printing men-
tioned in the Ticknor and Fields Cost Books probably coincides with plate form
D and that the fifth and sixth printings probably intervene between plate forms
D and E (that is, they may coincide with D or may have some, but not all, of
the characteristics of E). The fourth printing consisted of 3,000 copies printed

English edition, published by Smith, Elder and Co. at one guinea on September
19, 1863, simultaneously with the American edition (see the preceding entry).
There may have been four printings of this edition, but no definite means of
distinguishing them has been established. The Clark bibliography lists nine
points that may identify the first printing but notes that first- and later-printing
sheets may be mixed in any given copy. In one of the Florida copies, six of the
points are in the possible first-printing form ("archipelagos" rather than "archi-
pelagoes" appears in Vol. I, p. 27, line 25; the letter-spacing is perfect at II. 13.19
and II.13.21; the page number "133" in Vol. II is perfect; and there is perfect
type at the end of "Englishman," and "with" at II.151.22, 23), and the other
three are in the later form (in Vol. II, "three" is spelled properly at 18.25 and
the page numbers "56" and "129" have damaged type). The other copy con-
tains a different mixture: Vol. II, pp. 18, 56, and 129 are in the later form, the
other pages in the earlier. Bound, as Clark states, in dark olive green wave-grain
cloth with blind embossed sides; the gold stamping on the spine conforms to
BAL style A, the volume designations being in a typeface with thick and thin
elements; cream-coated endpapers; a publisher's catalogue of four pages in-
serted at the end of Vol. II. The English edition was set from early sheets of the
American, and Hawthorne was paid 150 for the English rights.
The first copy described here is in the Howe Library; the second is the UF
copy.

the process. ("Earth's Holocaust" originally appeared in Graham's Lady's and
Gentleman's Magazine for May, I844, and was collected in Mosses from an Old

had written him the day before on behalf of Kennedy, following an earlier letter
from Bliss; and a letter to Bliss, dated February 23, 1864, explaining why he
had sent his "precious autograph" to Winthrop (see Centenary Edition, XVIII,
636-37, 639, 713). This volume was published in April, 1864, to benefit the

of Nathaniel Hawthorne. 2 vols. Boston, 1868.
Clark A26.I.a; BAL 7632; Centenary Edition, VIII, 705-7. The first of two
1868 printings, with all the first-printing points listed by Clark (p. 274): the
spine imprints read "TICKNOR & CO." (not "Fields, Osgood & Co."); the
binder's leaves have vertical chain-lines; there is no type damage at 20.26-27,
167.17, 173.31, and 221.21-24 of Vol. I or at 51.25 and 14I1. of Vol. II; a
semicolon follows "thick" (not "fog") at 6.4 of Vol. II; and in Vol. II there is
an integral blank leaf (in addition to the binder's leaf) preceding the title, with
no integral blank at the end of the text. Dark green pebble-grain cloth, with
blind-stamped double rule frame on sides and with spines stamped in the style
of the "Tinted Edition" (1865-76), the first collected edition of Hawthorne's
works, as specified by Clark (cf. p. 342, "Ticknor format D," but without the
classical figure on sides; the third printing of these volumes became Vols. XV
and XVI of the "Tinted Edition," with spines so noting, in 1870); brown-coated
endpapers; binder's leaf at front and back. Published at $4 on November I I,
1868, by Ticknor and Fields in an edition of 1,500 copies. Approximately half

Original wrappers. This unauthorized edition, published by John Camden
Hotten in December, 1869, with an introduction (pp. 5-26) by Moncure D.
Conway, consists largely of ten of the twelve installments of the American
Note-Books first published in The Atlantic Monthly in 1866 (see NH 146)-and
therefore constitutes the first book publication of some of the material, because
some of it was omitted by Sophia Hawthorne in the Ticknor and Fields 1868
edition. The Hotten volume begins (pp. 27-41) with an excerpt from the English
Note-Books, the first book publication of the passage printed in The Atlantic
Monthly for July, 1867 (see NH 147).

the tradition of carriers' addresses and including the comment, "Once or twice,
a man of genius condescended to furnish his favorite newspaper with a New

years 1838 and 1839." (This prefatory note is unsigned but is attributed to
J. E. Babson [see NH 167] by Carroll A. Wilson [see NH 234], p. 145.)
Although the original title, "Time's Portraiture," is used at the beginning of the
actual address, the title that appears in larger type above the prefatory note is
"Father Time. By Nathaniel Hawthorne." Six years later the piece was collected
in The Dolliver Romance, and Other Pieces.

The collection contains -besides the two previously published scenes from The
Dolliver Romance (see NH 141 and 144) and an unpublished fragment of it-the
following pieces (of which the Howe Library contains the original appearances
of all but four, as indicated by parenthetical references without "cf."): "Sketches

NH 174 Transformation: or, The Romance of Monte Beni.
2 vols. Leipzig, 1860 [i.e., 1878?]
Clark A23.7; Todd & Bowden 515-16. Fourth Tauchnitz edition, with "no-
where" the first word of I,18 and "and" the first word of line 22 of II, 5. The
first printing of this edition, with "familiar" (no space after the first "a"),
"hearts," (comma present), "fe w" (space present), "fig s" (space present), and
"deed." (period present) in the last lines, respectively, of pp. I I and 23 of Vol.
I and pp. 83, 88, and 177 of Vol. II. These volumes constitute Nos. 515 and
516 in the famous series of Tauchnitz international editions in English. It was
the Tauchnitz custom to keep the original title-page dates on later printings and
editions, and all copies of the Tauchnitz Transformation are therefore dated 186o;
but the first printing of the fourth edition apparently came some time between
1871 and 1878, and Todd and Bowden cite a copy dated "June 1878" by
a former owner. Transformation was one of the best-selling titles in the long
Tauchnitz series (which eventually totaled over 4,000 titles), judging from the
fact that only one other work in the series (Macaulay's Lays of Ancient Rome)
reached a total of four typesettings.
This copy has been rebound, without the wrappers, and has been extra-
illustrated, with photographs mounted on the numerous added leaves. It is
therefore a characteristic example of the many individually embellished copies
of this edition made up by booksellers for the tourist trade or put together by
tourists themselves. Todd and Bowden say that Transformation, "as a useful guide
to Rome, is the Tauchnitz book most often found extensively extra-illustrated
with photographs" (p. 128).

NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE


Containing The Ancestral Footstep (July); XII, Tales, Sketches, and Other Papers, with
a biographical sketch by George Parsons Lathrop (August). (The Howe collec-
tion contains the first appearances of the three pieces first collected here: "The
Ancestral Footstep" in Vol. XI [see NH 180]; "Alice Doane's Appeal" and
"Chiefly about War Matters" in Vol. XII [see NH 15 and 130].) The thirteenth
volume, Doctor Grimshawe's Secret, is the fourth printing of Julian Hawthorne's
edition of this work (see NH 181 and Clark A3 I. I .d), produced in late September
and bound uniformly with the other volumes; but it does not contain the
Riverside Edition half-title and is not designated in the volume itself as the
thirteenth volume. (Grimshawe was published by James R. Osgood and Co. and
the rest of the set by Houghton Mifflin; the title was acquired by Houghton
Mifflin in 1889, and between then and 1891 copies of this volume in the trade
printings of the Riverside Edition were designated as Vol. XIII.) The Riverside
Edition was the third typesetting for a collected edition of Hawthorne's works,
following (1) the "Tinted Edition" (1865-76), the plates of which were used
for the Illustrated Library Edition (1871-82), the Globe Edition (1880), and
the "New" Fireside Edition (1886), and (2) the "Little Classic Edition" (1875-
83), the plates of which were used for the "Fireside Edition" (1879-82), the
Popular Edition (1891), and the Concord Edition (1899). The Riverside plates
were used for the Wayside Edition (1884-91), the Standard Library Edition
(1891), the "New" Wayside Edition (1902), the Fireside Edition (1909), and
the "Jefferson Press Edition" (1913). On the complicated history of the collected
editions of Hawthorne during the last third of the nineteenth century, see Clark,
pp. 341-69. (Titles, or parts of titles, in quotation marks here-and elsewhere
in these notes -were used in advertising but not in the volumes themselves.)
