New York: A. Greene. 1837. First. First edition. 12mo. Contemporary quarter morocco gilt, and unprinted paper covered boards. Later bookplate, and two earlier names (including that of Harriet Ann Chapman), joints rubbed and worn, front hinge a little tender, still a reasonably tight, just about very good copy. Harriet Ann Chapman was the daughter of Dennis Hanks, Abraham Lincoln's cousin and close friend. He and his family moved to Illinois with the Lincolns in 1830, and Harriet served as a live-in mother's helper at his Springfield, Illinois home between 1844-1846. Whether the owner of this book was the same Harriet Ann Chapman would require more research than we are willing to do, but she is the only American of that name that we can find that seems to fit in the proper date range. .
