Essays on Various Subjects, Principally designed for Young Ladies

by Hannah More

Condition: Fair/N

LONDON: T Cadell, 1791 Hannah More's collection of essays for 'young ladies' written from her own teaching experience. They range from 'sentimental connexions' to 'miscellaneous thoughts on wit'. They were extremely popular and much reprinted. She dedicated the work to Elizabeth Montagu of blue stocking fame. This is a copy of the 5th edition. The full leather binding is worn and the front board detached. There was clearly an attempt some time ago to strengthen the joint - a linen band has been stuck to the front board and endpaper. This has caused some slight browning to the first few leaves internally. There is small loss to the top of the spine and the hinge to the back board is weak. The contents however are very clean and bright with little other marking.
