Liverpool & London: Printed by G. F. Harris for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1808. First edition. Large squarish quarto. Original drab boards. Large wood-engraving on title page by H. Hole (after G. Cuit), headpieces and one one tailpiece wood engravings in the manner after Bewick. All edges untrimmed. Felicia Hemans' exceedingly scarce first book, written between the ages of eight and thirteen. For such an early author, the book is rather lavishly produced with the aid of Voscountess Kirkwall and dedicated to the Prince of Wales (by permission). A very rare survival given its size and fragility. Spine partially worn away (though some of paper label showing), corners worn, some browntoning owing to acidic paper, else a very good, tight copy an important book.
