About This Item

Boston: United States Publishing Company, 1846. [2],[5]-18,35-82pp. Octavo. Extracted from nonce pamphlet volume, without wrappers. Scattered foxing and spotting, some pencil names and annotations, still, a good, sound copy, partially untrimmed. First separate edition, after being first published in the company of another work as a component of a 'twilight' book, comprised of the sheets from the March 1843 issue of the BOSTON NOTION (see BAL 9953). The eccentric pagination is characteristic of all copies. These two novellas are somewhat less burdened with the overt religiosity that was to come to characterize Ingraham's fiction after his ordination in the Episcopalian church. The first work is, in part, set in New Orleans during the Yellow Fever epidemic and singles out for praise the acts of benevolence by members of the Order. BAL10022. WRIGHT I:1333.
