Smith, Charlotte Turner
EMMELINE, THE ORPHAN OF THE CASTLE. VOLUME I & VOL. II
Dublin: Published for Messrs. White, Wogan, Byrne, Moore, Jones, and Halpen, 1788. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. A Cinderella story in which the heroine stands outside the traditional economic structures of English society and ends up wealthy and happy, the novel is a fantasy. At the same time, it criticises the traditional marriage arrangements of the 18th century, which allowed women little choice and prioritised the needs of the family. Complete in 2 volumes. Vol. I: 317pp; front endpaper removed, light wear to the edges of the covers; Vol. II: 425pp, moderate wear to the edges and hinges of the covers. Both volumes are in the original full calf leather binding and are in good to good+ condition. A nice example of the rare first edition..
