About this Item

The complete title of this remarkable book of poetry, written in middle English is, Poems poems on Different subjects to which is added, a descriptive account of a family tour to the west; in the year 1800 in a letter to a lady. The poems are not only descriptive and very interesting, but contain many well thought out histories of the of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The last portion of the book ( approximately 40 pages is in the form of a diary by the author of her travels and her observations about not only landscape, but human nature. The book was published for subscription, and the last 10 pages are the names of the subscribers. With a little research ( I did a little) one might find some interesting names. Book is very good for being over 200 years old. It is bound in a suede like leather, quite worn with an unreadable yet complete untorn spine. This book is all original and is still quite tight with both ffe's bound tight. There are several former owners names on the ffe's in quite an old hand and there is on the last page of the poetry portion of the book a wonderful quotation in a beautiful old hand " Afflictions from above are angles sent on emb. of love. To pluck our flowers of hope from earth Ye. Montgomery." Book is untrimmed, and the pages show wear and browning and some are soiled, though very readable. Pages are brittle with age a several have tears, including the lfep which has a small corner section missing as is the previous blank page. This is a very wonderful and interesting and quite scarce collectible. Bookseller Inventory # 000812
