About this Item: Printed for the Author by H. Mann and J. H. Adams, Dedham, MA, 1799. 8vo (216 x 130 mm; 8 1/2 x 5 1/8 in.). [9], 513, [3, notes, list of subscribers] pages. Modern calf antique preserving original morocco lettering-piece on spine. A fine copy with a few intermittent foxmarks and some pale browning, the paper crisp and fresh. Provenance: Ann Bent (signature on title dated May 14th 1805). FIRST EDITION of one of the few 18th-century histories of the American Revolution, written by the first woman in the U.S. to work professionally as a writer. Having published her first book, 'A View of Religions, in 1784 and 1791, Adams (a distant cousin of the statesman and President John Adams) set to write a history of New England. In her note to the Reader, she refers to "a long interval of ill health" during the writing of the book that was in fact brought on by the reading of source material that weakened her eyesight. "She hopes," she continues," that generous humanity will soften the asperity of censure, and that the public will view with candor the assiduous, though, perhaps, unsuccessful efforts of a female pen."Though it does not contain a great deal of original scholarship, Adams's book is the most comprehensive history of New England to date, showing Adams deftly building a narrative out of her source material. The book was well received, and was abridged and reissued by the author in 1805. The early ownership by a woman enhances interest in this copy. The Ann Bent who signed the title may be that born in Milton, MA in 1768, later owner of a women's clothing store on Washington St. in Boston (died 1857). See Jacqueline Barbara Carr, "Marketing Gentility: Boston's Businesswomen, 1780-1830." The New England Quarterly 82, no. 1 (2009): 25-55. Evans 35075; Howes A50; Sabin 215. Seller Inventory # 404014

About this Item: Printed for the Author, by H. Mann and J. H. Adams, Dedham, 1799. First Edition. 8vo; [1-9] 513pp. + 1p. Notes and 2pp. Subscriber's List; contemporary calf with red morocco label on spine gilt-stamped with author and title, joints a trifle rubbed, corners bumped and rubbed, foxing to endpapers, a bit of light foxing scattered through the text, dampstain to top edge and first 9 pages, ex-libris of Bangor Athenaeum and ownership signature of prominent Bangor lawyer, Thomas A. Hill, on front pastedown and repeated on gutter margin of page 25. An attractive copy in a nice contemporary binding. Hannah Adams (1755-1831), born in Medfield, MA, was the first American woman who sought to make her living by writing. She published her first book, AN ALPHABETICAL COMPENDIUM OF VARIOUS SECTS in 1784 which saw several printings in the US and England and a second edition. Adams' MEMOIR (1832) testifies to the difficulty of female authorship during her time. This work, A SUMMARY HISTORY OF NEW-ENGLAND, in particular was the cause of a controversy with two male authors. She followed this book with THE HISTORY OF THE JEWS (1812), and LETTERS ON THE GOSPELS, as well as a posthumously published autobiography. These titles testify to her tenacity and scholarship, which was highly regarded in her day. Thomas A. Hill (1773-1864), the original owner of this book, was among the first lawyers to practice in Bangor Maine. His home, in the Greek Revival style, designed by Richard Upjohn, is now the home of the Bangor Historical Society Museum. NAW I, pp. 9-10. AMERICAN WOMEN WRITERS, pp. 12-13. FEMINIST COMPANION, p. 7. WOMEN'S WRITING IN THE UNITED STATES, pp. 9-10. TIMELINES OF AMERICAN WOMEN'S HISTORY, p. 306 ("The first woman to earn her livelihood from writing is Hannah Adams").
