The Hawthorne collector is lucky in that he has access to a vast library of high-quality bibliographical sources. The fourth volume of THE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE (also known as BAL) is a good place to start, but Frazer Clark’s NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE, A BIBLIOGRAPHY has largely replaced it (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1978). As a result, exercise extreme caution when dealing with a bookseller who relies on BAL rather than Clark, and you’ll prevent some costly mistakes. Consult Carroll Wilson’s THIRTEEN AUTHOR COLLECTIONS OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY (2 vols, 1950) and THE PARKMAN DEXTER HOWE LIBRARY, PART VI for more detail on his books’ publishing histories (University of Florida, 1989). HAWTHORNE AT AUCTION, 1894-1971 (Bruccoli-Clark, 1972) is a fascinating read, and among the many notable Hawthorne auctions through the years, the remarkable 1924 sale of Stephen H. Wakeman’s collection stands out. In the used book market, the 1930 reprint of the Wakeman sale (with prices realized marked) is readily available.

The scarlet letter (der scharlachrote buchstabe)

The Scarlet Letter was one of America’s first mass-market novels. It was well-received when it was first published[2] and is now regarded as a classic book. [three] It has been adapted into a number of films, television shows, and stage productions. It has been called a masterwork by critics[4] and a “complete work of the American imagination” by author D. H. Lawrence. (5)
Hester Prynne and Pearl are in the foreground, and Arthur Dimmesdale and Roger Chillingworth are in the background, in Hugues Merle’s painting The Scarlet Letter (painting by Hugues Merle, 1861).
A crowd gathers in Puritan Boston, Massachusetts to watch Hester Prynne, a young woman who has given birth to a baby of undisclosed parentage, be punished. Her punishment included three hours of public humiliation on the scaffold, as well as wearing the scarlet “A” for the rest of her life. Many of the women in the crowd are enraged by Hester’s grace and quiet integrity as she scales the scaffold. Hester refuses to name the father of her child when pressed and bribed.
