Original Poems, and a Play
[iv], 156,  pages of subscribers, errata, and a terminal blank leaf. The play is Clara; or, The Nuns of Charity: A Tragic Play, in Five Acts. The poems include a section of Irish Ballads, 'in the dialect spoken by the lower classes of people in the northern parts of Ireland.' If you believe the Internet, Nooth was an Irish poet. This is most likely incorrect--she is probably the daughter of James and Elizabeth Nooth, born April 15, 1788, in England. As a young woman, she had some success as a writer, publishing this book and a novel the following year. Some of her poems were published in French translation. Lady Shelley (Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley?) was one of the subscribers to this book. First edition (first printing). A very good or better copy in the original publisher's boards. Spine label chipped, affecting the word Poems. Despite the large number of subscribers, an uncommon book. Bookseller Inventory # 136685
