WUTHERING HEIGHTS

NY: Harper & Brothers, 1848. First US Edition. Hardcover. Cloth-bound issue of the first American edition of Bronte's novel with the author identified on the title page as "The Author of 'Jane Eyre' ". 8vo, finely patterned brown cloth, blind-stamped front and rear with gilt to spine, 288p. With an apparently contemporary, i.e. mid-19thC, bookplate for the Boxford (Massachusetts) Public Libary First Parish with donor's signature on the free front endpaper; no library stamps or spine markings present. This an unapolgetically unsophisticated copy that shows years of this immensely popular novel having been read many times. The spine is cocked, corners bumped, and the covers are partially faded as the is the spine which shows evidence of having been stained as are internal joints. The internals are foxed throughout. Some of the signatures have sprung. Good. Item #013346
