The early works of James Fenimore Cooper...

Item # 644845

February 2, 1822

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, Feb. 2, 1822  Page 2 has an early report about James Fenimore Cooper, America's first great author. The report mentions in part: "The Spy--The author of this native novel...is a Mr. Cooper, of Westchester, New York son of the late Judge Cooper, formerly a member of Congress from that State. 'Precaution' is also from his pen; and he is said to be engaged in writing another novel, 'The Pioneer, or the Sources of the Susquehannah.' "
The Spy was his first successful novel. The other two works mentioned were, indeed, by him.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, some foxing, generally nice.
