About this Item

This American Christian biography "set before children to allure them into the paths of piety, and before parents to encourage and stimulate them in the religious education of their children," chronicles the numerous, pious acts of Mary Lothrop, a chronically ill child who lived for only six years. Originally published by the American Tract Society earlier in 1832, both the first and this second edition list Perkins & Marvin as copyright holders. The wood-engraved frontispiece is signed "Whitney" (i.e., Elias James Whitney). Authorship is revealed by the ever efficient cataloguers of the American Antiquarian Society who discovered in Eleventh Annual Report of the American Tract Society (1836), p. 18, that "The narrative of Mary Lothrop [was] written by the lady of Rev. Rufus Anderson, of Boston," i.e., Eliza Hill Anderson. Provenance: "Maria Preston" on front pastedown and "Maria Preston, Dummerston Vermont" on back endpaper. 24mo (14.9 cm, 5.875"). Engr. frontis., 108 pp. American Imprints 13713. Quarter bound in brown leather over marbled paper?covered boards, gilt lettering and ruling on spine; spine with loss of leather at ends, covers and corners well-rubbed, front joint (outside) cracked and front cover loosening with back one firmly attached. Age-toning; soiling and spotting, and creasing; marked as above, with some pencilling on endpapers. => A good representative example of 19th-century Christian children's literature, well used in precisely the ways that children's books often are.
