This is a good rare collectible hardcover. 1893 Houghton Mifflin (Riverside Press). This copy is 16mo, 7"x5" approx. It is in good condition. The pages have light natural tanning from age and they are thin paper from the times, making them somewhat fragile but if you are careful each can be turned without tearing damage. The binding is tight and straight and in very good condition. No serious foxing, only tanning to pages and they are clean and free of markings. Red hardcover boards with tan leatherette spine. Lettering spine and cover still very good with only light rubbing. There is wear to cover at corners but overall very good given age.

This copy includes both volumes of Nathaniel Hawthorne's Twice-Told Tales. Volume l and 2 included. Twice-Told Tales is a short story collection, the first volume being published in 1837 and the second in 1842. All the stories had previously been published in magazines and annuals, as such, the title of Twice-Told Tales for the volumes rather apropos. The Grolier Club later named Twice-Told Tales as the most influential book of 1837.
