Here is a nice 2 Volume Set of the Henry Brevoort Letters to Washington Irving by George Hellman for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
In 1915, G. P. Putnam's Sons brought into publication, in a specially printed edition, the letters written by Washington Irving to his friend Henry Brevoort. The editorial responsibility for the two volumes rested with Mr. George S. Hellman. The public showed a favorable and immediate interest in the volumes and the edition was exhausted within a few days of its publication. Encouraged by the interest expressed in this series of letters, the publishers are glad to be able to present, under the same editorial supervision, the other side of this distinctive correspondence, the letters of Henry Brevoort to Washington Irving.
These books are in good condition. These books are part of a first edition limited edition set of 350 that were issued, this being # 197, see pic #5. The two volumes have gray cloth hardcovers. There are gold gilt seals on the front and back covers of both books. Title of book and volume number on a brownish red label on the spine. Some sun lightening to the covers and spine.
There are no dust covers, not certain if there were any to begin with. The books are entitled, "Henry Brevoort Letters to Washington Irving". The books were written by George Hellman. Published by Putnam Sons and Knickerbocker Press of NY.
Some minor rub along the cover's edges. No foxing or brown spotting. No musty or mildewy smell. No ink markings in either book. Pencil markings in one book and a book store's stamps on one of the front pages in both books.
Each book is 9-5/8" tall, by 6.25" across, by 1-1/8" wide. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
