  • Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • Date: 1876-00-00
  • Publisher: James R. Osgood and Co.
  • Pub. Series: Hawthorne's Works: Illustrated Library Edition

    • Two volumes bound as one. Volume I: Fanshawe, and Other Pieces. Volume II: The Dolliver Romance, and Other Pieces.
    • First edition, first printing.
    • The full text and illustrations of this printing can be seen at Google Books.
    • The five essays in Volume I appear under the collective title "Biographical Sketches."
    • "The Inland Port," "Rochester," and "A Night Scene" appear under the collective title "Sketches from Memory."
    • Some of the contents are previously-uncollected pieces that appeared unsigned in periodicals, and were attributed to Hawthorne by the editor of this collection. Roy Harvey Pearce, the editor of the Library of America edition of Hawthorne's complete short fiction, doubts that "Graves and Goblins" and the "Sketches from Memory" are actually by Hawthorne.
    • The three fragments of the Dolliver Romance are from a novel (also known as The Elixir of Life) that Hawthorne was trying unsuccessfully to write during his final years. Two of them were published in the Atlantic Monthly and the third appears in this collection for the first time.
    • Each volume has an uncredited frontispiece illustration (illustrating "Fanshawe" and "The Dolliver Romance" respectively). The first is signed with the initials "A.F." and the second, clearly by a different hand, has no visible signature. The frontispiece of the double volume is a portrait of the author.
    • 2000 has been added to the page numbers of the second volume.
