The Seasons: Containing, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter:. With the life of the Author.

Wrentham, MA: Nathaniel Heaton, 1800. First Edition (presumed). Hardcover. From the library of noted American poet and author Lewis Turco. Volumes from Turco's library are easy to identify as he had a (bad) habit of both signing the pastedown and embossing the title page. It does, however, make it easy to establish provenance. Repairs performed by Turco, who practiced (the operative term) bookbinding and repair. Interesting early/dated inscriptions. Overall, a very presentable copy. Good+. No DJ as Issued. Light shelf/edge wear, tips through, front hinge split and repaired (with added pastedown and ffep), partial repaired split at rear hinge, owner inscriptions/notation at endpages, light toning to text block, small worm loss at lower front board, else tight and clean. Full brown leather boards, burgundy label, gilt lettering. 12mo. 168pp. Item #4822

Price: $65.00
