Description:

HOFLAND, [Barbara], Mrs. The Good GRANDMTOHER[sic] and Her Offspring; A Tale. Orig. marbled-paper-covered boards with morocco spine back with gilt lettering, rules, and heart-shaped decorations on spine. New York: Published by James Eastburn . E.B. Gould, Printer, 1817. 16mo. First American edition, following the English original of the same year. Rare; OCLC locates only seven copies and AI adds only three others. The misspelling of "grandmother" in the title is not noted by OCLC, NUC, AI, or Welch; it is unclear if this is the result of cataloguing errors or if there was another issue of the book in the same year with this misspelling corrected. If the latter is the case, the present copy may safely assumed to be the first issue of the book. " sorrows, stimulate the energies, and encourage the efforts of the industrious poor, is the intention of the present story; but this end will certainly be obtained most effectually, by rendering it . of interest [to] the liberal and well-informed in the struggles to which the poor and ignorant are liable, and engaging them both from the principle and feeling, to assist these their `weaker brethren.'" --dedication. Barbara Hofland (1770-1844) was a prolific novelist and, in her day, a very popular author. She is best remembered for The Son of a Genius (1816). "In the dedicatory letter addressed to Mrs. Haugh of Doncaster, the author says she had the honour of having the book approved `by the first female author of the present day,' Maria Edgeworth." --Osborne, p. 261 (English ed.). AI 41067. Welch 604. A nice copy in a charming early American binding. Early name on pastedown, light scattered foxing, still a very good to near fine copy. Bookseller Inventory #
