      New York: G and C. and H. Carvill, 1829. Fair. No Jacket First edition. Finely ribbed dark brown cloth. xxix, 174 pages. A prolific writer throughout her life, Davidson's work was well reviewed by others, including Robert Southey, who perhaps served to mythologize her work. Edgar Allan Poe, in a review of her work (as well as that of Margaret Miller Davidson), states that she "evinces more unequivocally the soul of a poet." In FAIR/GOOD condition. Moderate scuffing and fading to the cloth, with heavy scuffing and wear to the cloth along the extremities. Corners somewhat rounded. Upper 1 ½ inches of the Backstrip coming loose from the spine, with ¾ of an inch of the Backstrip missing at the foot of the spine. Faint area of staining to the center rear cover. Interior solid with scattered foxing throughout, moderate to heavy to several pages. Faint dampstain affecting the lower portion of the first half of the book, mostly in the gutter and lower margins. Previous owner's gift inscription on the second endpaper. Small pencil notation in the margin of one page. Sabin 18734.
