Harper & Brothers publishes the first American editions of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, and Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Although Wuthering Heights is very successful in England, in the United States, it troubles many readers. Shortly after it is published by Harper & Brothers, a group of Bostonians force a local bookstore to return copies to the publisher, arguing that its “profanity was beyond enduring.”
