About this Item

Second, expanded edition, following the first of the previous year, of the author's second published book. In addition to the title piece, the volume includes "Goldau: Or the Maniac Harper," along with a few shorter works. Neal, who went on to become a prominent voice in 19th-century American literature, describes in the preface here his distress over the first edition, which he calls "crowded and disfigured with innumerable errors ? chiefly typographical, however; though in some cases, whole lines were left out. . . ." Alas, this edition also required an errata leaf. 18mo (15.6 cm, 6.2"). Add. engr. t.-p., 272 pp. BAL 14856; Shaw & Shoemaker 48824; Wegelin 1066. On Neal, see: Dictionary of American Biography. Period-style quarter tan cloth over light blue paper?covered boards, spine with printed paper label. Dedication page and a few others (not including title) stamped by a now-defunct institution. Waterstaining to upper margins and some inner page parts, with final leaves darkened and a few spotted with foxing. Some upper edges chipped; final leaf with inner margin repaired.
