About this Item

2 volumes. 8vo, pp. viii, 13-222, 1;[vi], [1], iv, 9-207. Pencil signature of previous owner on each endpaper. Bound in original publisher's (faded and some soiled) purple cloth with rubbed and some worn printed paper label, some light foxing to the endpapers, a very good tight set. Morgan (1776 - 1859), the first financially successful woman writer "was a celebrated social, literary and political figure for half a century."[Schleuter p. 356]. A number of her works were popular Irish political novels. Blain calls this "a fascinating historical quest (covering the Bible, Asian and African sources) for the deeds of `this dupe of fictions and subject of force', concludes that her role is on of `spiritual and affectionate activity'. " Schleuter calls it "a critique of the treatment of women from barbaric times to the Middle Ages and a plea for women's rights.". Bookseller Inventory # 54492
