This set includes three(3) First Editions: DRIFT FROM TWO SHORES(Houghton Osgood 1878) , THE TWINS OF TABLE MOUNTAIN(Houghton Osgood 1879) and THE STORY OF MINE (Houghton Osgood 1878); also an early edition of Harte's Complete Edition of THE POETICAL WORKS (James Osgood 1877). Ornate brown boards with gilt lettering and black embossed design. Of the four, THE STORY OF MINE shows the most wear. The black pastedown has spotting, the boards show wear and the pages up to the title page have separated. The boards on DRIFT FROM TWO SHORES also show wear but generally the books are nice and tight.These books are old especially The Story and Drift which would benefit from a light cleaning.
