Trieste Publishing has a massive catalogue of classic book titles. Our aim is to provide readers with the highest quality reproductions of fiction and non-fiction literature that has stood the test of time. The many thousands of books in our collection have been sourced from libraries and private collections around the world.The titles that Trieste Publishing has chosen to be part of the collection have been scanned to simulate the original. Our readers see the books the same way that their first readers did decades or a hundred or more years ago. Books from that period are often spoiled by imperfections that did not exist in the original. Imperfections could be in the form of blurred text, photographs, or missing pages. It is highly unlikely that this would occur with one of our books. Our extensive quality control ensures that the readers of Trieste Publishing's books will be delighted with their purchase. Our staff has thoroughly reviewed every page of all the books in the collection, repairing, or if necessary, rejecting titles that are not of the highest quality. This process ensures that the reader of one of Trieste Publishing's titles receives a volume that faithfully reproduces the original, and to the maximum degree possible, gives them the experience of owning the original work.We pride ourselves on not only creating a pathway to an extensive reservoir of books of the finest quality, but also providing value to every one of our readers. Generally, Trieste books are purchased singly - on demand, however they may also be purchased in bulk. Readers interested in bulk purchases are invited to contact us directly to enquire about our tailored bulk rates.
Very Good. Book A first edition of Whittier's best known poemThis is the first edition, second issue with the final page (52) unnumbered as shown above. With the original binding bound into the book at the rear, as shown above. Bound by Stikeman & Co. Bound in half leather with green cloth covered boards and gilt lettering. John Greenleaf Whittier (1807 1892) was an influential American Quaker poet and ardent advocate of the abolition of slavery in the United States. He is usually listed as one of the Fireside Poets. Whittier was strongly influenced by the Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Thispoem takes place in what is today known as the John Greenleaf Whittier Homestead, which still stands in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The poem chronicles a rural New England family as a snowstorm rages outside for three days. Stuck in their home, the family members exchange stories by their roaring fire. Whittier began the poem originally as a personal gift to his niece Elizabeth as a method of remembering the family. Nevertheless, he told publisher James Thomas Fields about it, referring to it as a homely picture of old New England homes. Snow-Bound was first published as a book-length poem on February 17, 1866. Snow-Bound was financially successful, much to Whittier's surprise. By the summer after its first publication, sales had reached 20, 000, earning Whittier royalties of ten cents per copy. He ultimately collected $10, 000 for it. Its popularity also led to the home depicted in the poem being preserved as a museum in 1892. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some slight wear to the extremities including slight bumping, and discolouration to the spine. The front inner hinge is slightly strained. Internally the pages are clean and bright with the odd handling mark. There is some slight offsetting from the frontispiece. Overall the condition of the book is very good.
