Transformation: or the Romance of Monte Beni, Nathaniel Hawthorne, 3/4 leather bound, London, 1860
This is a three-volume work by Nathaniel Hawthorne titled Transformation: or the Romance of Monte Beni. This was the last of four major romances by Hawthorne and was published by Smith, Elder & Co, London in 1860.
The books are bound in 3/4 light brown leather with marbleized boards. The books measure 5 inches by 7 1/2 inches. The books are in good condition. The bindings and covers are in good order. There is some wear at the tops of the spines. The front cover on volume 1 has a faded streak across the top, maybe due to exposure to light. The books only have a bit of foxing on one or two of the end pages. The texts are complete, and the bindings are strong. The pages are clean.
A very nice set of Nathaniel Hawthorne's writings.
