1856 The Song of Hiawatha
What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Rebound
A new edition of Henry W. Longfellow's epic poem. It follows stories of the Ojibwe people of Lake Superior, and particularly focuses on the adventures of fictional warrior Hiawatha of Ojibwe, and his tragic love story with Minnehaha from Dakota.
Longfellow led most of his research spending time with friend and writer George Copway, Ojibwe Chief also known as Kah-Ge-Ga-Gah-Bowh, who, amongst other things, was also an advocate for indigenous people.
With notes and a vocabulary to the rear. Previous owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, George Troyte Bullock, with ownership signature to the front free endpaper, dated 1857.
In a half calf binding over marbled boards. Externally sound with minor shelf wear and minor chipping to the head of the spine and extremities, a touch of sunning to the spine, minor scuffing to the leather.
