$38.00

The House of Seven Gables is a Gothic novel set in New England where the eponymous house sets the stage for gloomy, supernatural events. Through flashbacks and hauntings, Nathaniel Hawthorne constructs this narrative true to the Gothic genre. It was an immediate success upon publication in 1851, and alongside The Scarlet Letter, it elevated Hawthorne’s legacy, helping him become one of America’s greatest early novelists. This illustrated edition is a terrific representation of the work. It contains Valenti Angelo’s color illustrations atop each chapter heading.

Fine condition. In the original half leather boards, especially fine with silver gilt stamped spine and color illustrations to both boards. Text block fine. Speckled edges. In the original slipcase, near fine with only minor fading and rubbing to edges. With the original publisher’s Sandglass laid in.

A fine illustrated edition of Hawthorne’s classic Gothic fiction.
