CAPEN, Lemuel]
Tribute of Affection to John Roulstone, Jr. A Member of the Freshman Class in Harvard University; who died February 20, 1822
Printed by John Cotton, Jr, 1822. Very Good. Softcover. First edition. 16mo. 15, [1]pp. Stitched printed self-wrappers. Bottom corner of first leaf trimmed, affecting no text, modest foxing, small later clipping tipped-in (disputing the claim that Roulstone had actually created the verse "Mary Had a Little Lamb" at the age of 10, a claim also disputed by the attributed author, Sarah Hale), overall very good. There seems to be some reason to believe that Roulstone wrote at least a part of the poem. *OCLC* locates eight copies; two in London, all of the others in New England. [Attributes: First Edition]
