Last of the Mohicans with Signed James Fenimore Cooper Signed Check, 1859

About

This is an 1859 edition of The Last of the Mohicans: A Narrative of 1757 by James Fenimore Cooper. The first edition was released in 1836 as a two-volume set. This edition was published later as one volume and is unique in that it has a signed Fenimore Cooper checked tipped into the book. Bound in beautifully embossed full leather and housed in a matching cloth slipcase -- an exceptional example. This volume is the second and best-known book of his Leather stocking Tales pentalogy. Like the rest of the books in the series, the story follows the adventures of Natty Bumppo, nicknamed “Hawkeye” by his Native American friends. Set in 1757 in the American wilderness that would become New York State, The Last of the Mohicans takes place during the Seven Years' War (known in America as the French and Indian War). The book is widely read in American Literature courses, particularly in discussions of westward Expansion and Native American assimilation, although Cooper himself was considered sympathetic towards Native Americans.
