About this Item

Frontispiece and 3 plates. Publisher's cloth with gilt lettering on the front board, rubbed, spine knicked; interior very good, with pencil tracings on the tissue guards, and ownership inscriptions on the last plate rear end paper, also in pencil. First and only edition of this rather rare travelogue written by a young woman studying and traveling throughout the Rhine valley, a particularly picturesque and historic area of the country. One of six teenagers sent to live and study in the region (the girls were from Spain, Germany, Scotland, England, France, and America) with the Widow von Heine, the author describes her days spent visiting museums, churches, gardens and other locales, some popular with other tourists, some off the beaten trail. Evenings were set aside for writing letters, playing games, and general partying. Of particular interest are her descriptions of early architecture and the new and interesting foods that were introduced during their travels. Of course there was some drama, as befalls teenage girls, even in the nineteenth century. Unique, as from the perspective of a young girl away from home.Lucy Ann Hill (b.1831) apparently wrote one other book, a novel entitled Marion's year in a German school, published in 1899.
