Description

SIGNED. 413; 7pp. Octavo [19.5 cm] Brown cloth covered boards with gilt stamped titles and black ink stamped vignettes on the spine and front cover. Good. The covers are rubbed and lightly soiled. The underlying boards are exposed along the edges. The edges of the covers are bumped. The spine is gently rolled, subtly darkened, and the cloth at the spine ends is heavily chipped. There is a very small open tear in the cloth near the center of the spine, affecting a tiny bit of the title. There is a former owner's bookplate, along with a bookseller's small label on the front pastedown. There are tiny closed tears in the fore edge margins of pp. 25-42. The text block is cracked multiple. The pages are mildly browned.

Comments

Paher 728, Currey & Kruska 239, Cowan II, p. 249. A piece of paper signed by Greenwood has been mounted to the front free endsheet. In 1844, Lippincott gained national attention, at age 21, with a poem published in the New York Mirror. She wrote under both her given name and her pseudonym. Lippincott also lectured extensively before and during the Civil War, giving particular attention to her abolitionist position and to other social issues, such as prison and asylum reform, and the abolition of capital punishment.
