Second edition (same year as the first). vi, 47, [1] pp. 1 vols. 4to. Signed by the 'Swan of Lichfield" In the Fall of 1780 the young and dashing British officer, John Andrè, was arrested in civilian clothes, with a false passport, bearing reports from Benedict Arnold to General Henry Clinton on the vulnerabilities of the fort at West Point. His execution as a spy prompted great sympathy on both sides of the Atlantic. In the household of Anna Seward, the 'swan of Lichfield", where there was a close personal attachment to Andrè, a keenly felt outrage was directed at the bloodthirsty George Washington in this poem which has been reprinted innumerable times. Honora Sneyd (the mother of Maria Edgeworth) was a close friend of Anna Seward and Honora was romantically involved with Major André:"Remorseless Washington! the day shall come"Of deep repentance for this barb'rous doom!" For this second setting of Seward's poem, the errata were corrected, and Hayley's laudatory poem, "To Miss Seward, Impromptu," was been added at pp. v-vi.

Book Description Printed and Sold by J. Jackson, for the Author, Lichfield, 1781. [2], vi, 47, [1] pp. 4to: 1 A3 [A4 = 1?] B - G4. 10-1/2" x 8-1/4" Seward was a prominent woman of letters in her day, having, for example, the admiration of Wordsworth & Scott, and whose disapproval of Dr. Johnson is as well chronicled as her support of young writers of the era is, perhaps, under appreciated. This title, her second published, by the 'Swan of Lichfield' [as this poet is known] is a tribute to the suitor of her friend, Honoria Sneyd [stepmother to Maria Edgeworth]; said suitor having been executed, as a courier of information from Benedict Arnold to General Clinton, during the Revolutionary War by the Americans. The work's publication reportedly "brought her an apology from General Washington." Cf. Shattock. BRITISH WOMEN WRITERS, pp. 384-85. Uncommon title; last at auction in 1996. A VG+ copy, showing minor extremity wear & evidence of some inconsequential worming @ base of spine. Later tan half-calf with marbled paper boards. Gilt title lettering to spine The Second Edition (NCBEL II, 682; Sabin 79478). SIGNED by the Author on p. 28. Bookseller Inventory # 23619
