Excerpt from Bibliography of the Works of Nathaniel Hawthorne
Of these early writings, the manuscript of the little magazine entitled Tba Spectator is still extant, and in the possession of the Manning family in Salem. This remarkable specimen of early juvenile journalism consists of six numbers, the first being a prospectus and the remaining five issued weekly from August 21 to September I 8, I 8 20. The work was all done by pen upon small note-size paper.
Of the early anonymous literary attempts of Hawthorne some will, from time to time, in all probability be made known.
In the preparation of this Bibliography, I have examined every title mentioned (and, in the majority oi instances, several different copies have passed through my hands), with the single exception of A Rill from the Town Pump (i857), of which, to my knowledge, there is no copy in this country, and the in formation relating to it, which is given herein, was obtained through the courtesy of the British Museum.
