London: Printed at the Minerva Press for A. K. Newman and Co. Leadenhall-Street, 1817. First edition. Collated.

One volume recased, scattered foxing, remnants of original printed spine labels with early ink titling near same. Rare triple-decker novel retaining its original publisher's quarter-cloth bindings. "If the author of the following tale avows a desire to unite the moral application of Miss [Hannah] More with the sentiment of Miss [Sydney] Owenson, she will probably excite the ridicule of some, the scorn of others, and the pity of those who are too gentle for ridicule, and too amiable for scorn; yet she cannot conceive the attempt embraces any thing impossible." (Preface) Eliza Taylor was also the author of The Nobleman and His Steward, or Memoirs of the Albany Family, A Novel (1803) and The Heiress of Avonmore, A Novel (1805), both likewise printed at John Lane's Minerva Press, the circulating library and publishers of well-favored gothic novels. Anonymously, Taylor also wrote The Father and Son: or, de Claremont; a Desultory Tale. All titles are rare and we find no biographical information concerning the author.
