COMPLETE WORKS OF BRET HARTE. Collected and Revised by the Author

(London: Chatto & Windus, 1890-1900).

FIRST OF THE EDITION HANDSOMELY BOUND AND QUITE SCARCE THUS. Bret Harte was one of the earliest American writers to emerge from the state of California. His stories, often infused with local colour from the region, won him world regard. In fact, he was far more popular in Europe then he ever was in the United States.
This collection includes his poetry as well as the stories and short novels for which he is far better known. Item #16614

10 volumes. First edition thus. 8vo, in lovely bindings for Sotheran & Co. of three-quarter rose calf with matching cloth covered boards, corner and spines ruled in gilt, spines with gilt stippled raised bands creating compartments featuring an attractive gilt device, two compartments with morocco labels lettered and ruled in gilt. A fine and handsome set but for some minor mellowing to the bindings, the spines very evenly toned to salmon.
