Friendship volume: poems, earnest Christian sentiments, and general good wishes, lovingly and often very prettily inscribed by a variety of friends and acquaintances. Bylines include Ohio towns Damascus, Providence, Salem, and Carmel as well as Brownsville, Pennsylvania. An illustrated engraved title-page and three picturesque little images are bound in, along with a few leaves of blue and yellow paper. Sentiments, a good many signed in full and dated, appear generally on the rectos, which are nearly all "taken"; some also appear on versos or inked around images on plate pages. While the date of this album does not lend itself to establishing ownership by the Mary M. Negus known as a pioneering woman lawyer and temperance activist (that lady having been born in 1838), it seems possible that there may be a family connection. A later family member appears also to have been confounded by this volume's source ? a laid-in slip says "From Mother ? origin??" Oblong 16mo (7.7cm, 3"). [106] pp.; 4 plts. Original quarter straight-grain roan with tan paper?covered sides, spine gilt-stamped, leather edges with gilt roll; binding rubbed overall with much loss of spine gilt, hinges (inside) cracked. Some pages foxed or stained. => Charmingly representative of a particular type of elevated sentiment of the early 19th century, and interesting documentation of a (presumably young) lady's social circle.
