Bound in 19th century, half calf, lacks a 1/2 inch triangle of leather near the bottom of the spine of volume one, there is a hole (1/2 inch triangle) in the blank portion of the inner margin of the title page of volume1) with contemporary bookplate of Anne Isabella Kevill on the paste down of each volume, repair to the leather on the spine of volume one, little rubbed, a very good copy. Howes G-303, Larned 1101; TPL 419. Rare. Anne Macvicar Grant (1755-1838) spent her formative years with her Scottish army officer father in Albany, NY. (1758-68). Blain notes: "This ranks high as biography (of local matriarch Catalina Schuyler), autobiography . and as history, with both detail and elegiac feelings about colonial life, especially the 'distinguished race' of Mohawks . Her conservatism and self-deprecation have somewhat obscured her quiet feminism and remarkable mind." [p.4512]. Conway notes that this is "an invaluable account of domestic life and manners in Colonial New York .". Bookseller Inventory # 50442
