New York: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, 1852. Here is an anthology of the great American historian's essays from "The North American Review." This is a Near Fine copy of the First American Edition.

Spine has five raised bands with gilt ruling and decorations. There is a red label with gilt titling. Clean text; vii, 638 pages, with a two-page advert for "Valuable Works for Reference" in the rear. Marbled endpapers and edges. Only some occasional spotting throughout, but generally a nice, bright text; very readable today, and probably worth it.. First American Edition.. Half-Leather.

Biographical and Critical Miscellanies

William H. Prescott

London - Richard Bentley, 1845 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. William H. Prescott's Biographical and Critical Miscellanies. Direct from the library at Newton Hall, the 18th century country house and estate in Northumberland, with a pencil shelfmark to the front free-endpaper, and the armorial bookplate of S. E. Widdrington to the front pastedown. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering. First Edition. Black and white frontis with tissue guard. Essays include Irving's Conquest of Granada, Cervantes, Sir Walter Scott, Moliere, Italian Narrative Poetry, and Scottish Song. The following Essays, with a single exception, have been selected from contributions originally made to the North American Review. They are purely of a literary character; and as they have little reference to local or temporary topics, and as the Journal in which they appeared, though the most considerable in the United States, is not widely circulated in Great Britain, it has been thought that a republication of the Articles might have some novelty and interest for the English reader - Preface. William Hickling Prescott (17961859) was an American historian, known for his books The History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic and The History of the Conquest of Mexico. In all his works he displayed great research, impartiality, and an admirable narrative power. Prescott was a man of amiable and benevolent character, and enjoyed the friendship of many of the most distinguished men in Europe as well as in America. Samuel Edward Widdrington (formerly Cook), 1787 - 1856, was an English writer. Having served as a Captain in the Royal Navy, he lived for some years in Spain. He served as High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1854. He was a fellow of the Royal Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. By royal license he assumed the name Widdrington, and purchased the moiety in 1842. He inherited the Newton Hall estate from his father, Joseph Cook. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The inner hinges are very slightly strained. There is only some mild wear to the extremities, with just some mild sunning to the spine, and slight bumping. Internally the pages have very mild browning to the page edges, with the occsaional spot,becoming prominent to the first few pages. Overall the condition is very good..
