Address to a young lady on her entrance into - [NICKLIN, Susan] - 1796. 
London: printed for Hookham and Carpenter. 1796. Two vols., 8vo., (2) + 202 and (2) + 216pp., contemporary uniform tree calf, spines gilt but worn with a pretty, original, title label (red gilt) on vol.II only, endpapers a little marked else very good copies. First editions: scarce. The author is identified as 'Susan Nicklin' in ESTC & OCLC but seems otherwise to be unknown. The book itself, addressed to 'My dear young friend', indicates, however, that the author was the young lady's governess who here provides her 'young friend' with moral, social and spiritual guidance for her impending adult life as a lady of privilege. Thus she addresses such subjects as scriptures, the sabbath, truth, content, fortitude, pride, and 'on the duties of children to parents' (a long section in vol.II, pp.103-203).
