Description:

i-xxiv, 25-434, [2] pages. Hardcover: H 21.5cm x L 14cm. Original dark aquamarine cloth stained and soiled, spine's gilt stamped lettering and lengthwise floral crests remain fairly bright save for some adverse mottling at lower spine cloth, spine head frayed with heel worn fairly even with bottom edge of text block and short curled peeling at lower front joint, board corners well worn, stamped decoration to both boards with still bright gilt stamped centerpieces. Moisture stains on front and rear leaves; mostly mild to moderate foxing throughout. Faded pencil inscription upon front free endpaper; binding splitting between front free endpaper and frontispiece recto and thus may be missing a front flyleaf; frontis recto has faded ink inscription of a Miss Brownrigg and another ink Miss Brownrigg signature upon rear free endpaper. Top corner of title page clipped. "Advertisement" (i.e. a prefatory essay) by R.W.G. on pages iii-iv; "Memoir of Thomas Campbell" by Washington Irving on pages v-xv and "Remarks on Campbell's Poems" by Lord Jeffrey on pages xvii-xx. Includes "The Pleasures of Hope," "Gertrude of Wyoming," "Theodoric: A Domestic Tale," "The Pilgrim of Glencoe," followed by numerous miscellaneous poems and concluding with Translations and Notes. Single unpaged leaf of publisher's advertisements at rear. This particular copy has a prominent 19th century Mississippi association via the aforementioned signatures of "Miss Brownrigg" who presumably is either Elizabeth B. Brownrigg (1830-?) or Sarah P. Brownrigg (1835-?) who were the only daughters among General Richard Thomas Brownrigg's (1793-1847) five children. The Brownrigg family were early residents of Columbus, Mississippi having settled there in 1835 when General Brownrigg (1793-1847) sold his Chowan County, North Carolina estate in order to purchase a two thousand acre tract for a cotton plantation on the west side of the Tombigbee River and construct the family's new manor house, Temple Heights, which still stands today. The Brownrigg Family Papers are held by the Wilson Library Manuscripts Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Only a good copy at best but still a complete antiquarian collection of the literary efforts by the famous Scottish poet. Bookseller Inventory #
