Halpen, 1789 - 12mo, two volumes: pp. [i-iii] iv-xxiv [1] 2-263 [264: blank]; [1-5] 6-311 [312: blank], half title leaf in volume II, apparently none called for in volume I; collates A-I 12 K-M 12; B-I 12 K-O 12 (as per Trinity College, Dublin, copy), eighteenth-century calf, spine panels ruled in gold, red leather title pieces, black leather number pieces. First Dublin edition. Sentimental fiction with Gothic elements. "The novel derives from a heavily sentimental tale by Baculard d'Arnaud, D'ALMANZI, ANECDOTE FRANCAISE (1776) . As in THE TWO MENTORS (1783), Clara Reeve controls her Gothic and morbid tendencies to weave a tale of the sufferings of the moral life." - Frank, The First Gothics 357.
