Charlestown: , Printed by Samuel Etheridge, for E. Larkin, 1800. Hardcover. 12mo. Two volumes bound in one. xi,(1),146; (3)-136pp. Contemporary full sheep, modern black lettering label, gilt, to stye on the spine.
Hinges and spine tips have been neatly repaired, wear to the edges of the boards, else this is a very good copy. With the 1801 ownership signature of Elizabeth Cabot on a preliminary blank, and the armorial bookplate of Charles Jackson on the front pastedown.
More was a contemporary of Johnson, Dryden, and Montague . She was a strong anti-slavery advocate, and even more determined to edcuate women for their good and that of society. First published in London in 1799, this is one of the two American editions produced in 1800, the other published in Philadelphia. We have been unable to establish precedence to our satisfaction. Very good. Item #20023
