The Scarlet Letter (Deluxe Hardcover)
By Nathaniel Hawthorne
This book is offered in conjunction with the Peabody Essex Museum's exhibition The Creative Legacy of Nathaniel Hawthorne: Selections from the Phillips Library Collection on view September 28, 2019 to March 12, 2020. Nathaniel Hawthorne is integral to Salem’s rich history, and PEM’s Phillips Library collection includes over 3,000 individual volumes by the author.
This deluxe hardcover reproduction of a rare 1920 edition features 31 atmospheric watercolor plates by Hugh Thomson, a noted illustrator of classic literature. A compelling tale of sin, guilt, and revenge, The Scarlet Letter is also a story of love and forgiveness. Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1850 masterpiece unfolds among the rigidly intolerant Puritans of the Massachusetts Bay colony, where Hester Prynne is condemned to wear the scarlet letter as a badge of shame. Rich in symbolism, the novel offers a uniquely American perspective on spiritual and moral issues.
