About this Item

60 pp. 8vo. Blue-grey p rinted paper wraps. Third Edition. In the 1830's to 1840's, America was the subject of a series of critical expositions by European visitors, including Alexis de Toqueville, Harriet Martineau, Frances Trollope, Captain Marryat and Charles Dickens, the most critical being Marryat and Dickens. The culmination was the diatribe "American Notes" and the subsequent novel, "Martin Chuzzlewit," by Dickens. These were not unanswered. The most acknowledged response was in Henry Wood's "Change for the American Notes," purporting to be in the form of a letter from an "American Lady." This pamphlet by Thomas Cary, again in the form of a letter to a "Lady in France", deals with a cluster of criticisms of America, responded to by Cary as the "The Late Imputations of Dishonor upon the United States" by several critics. Most explicitly he responds to specific criticisms of America voiced by Captain Marryat and Charles Dickens. This third edition lacks the advertisement to the second edition, printed in thatedition only. The first edition, only, was published in late 1843 without the authorial ascription. Lacks rear wrapper. Shows stab holes near spine, likely from a secondary binding. Lightly soiled cover. Else, Very Good +. Podeschi H8082. Bookseller Inventory # 9762
