1st Ed. The Courtship of Miles Standish Longfellow 1858
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, First Edition, The Courtship of Miles Standish and Other Poems. Boston:Ticknor and Fields, 1858, brown boards with gold gilt title on spine. This antique book shows some wear and has a small rectangle cut out of the last page (no text affected; see photos). The spine is still tight and the pages are lightly foxed considering the age. But if this were in fine condition it would sell for over $600. The book measures 5" x 7 1/2". The end papers are also brown. It is in remarkable shape considering it's popularity & it's age. There is an inscription on the 2nd page and it has been written with a steel tip nib pen. It was apparently a Christmas gift in 1858. I think this lends itself to the books character. This is an affordable chance to have a first edition Longfellow in your family library.
