Poughkeepsie, Joseph Nelson, 1811. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. Two volumes, complete. A rare American Gothic novel, and a protofeminist work wherein we see two female protagonists imprisoned in their father's castle, one in the traditional British role , the other updating and subverting this with American pluck - "The only major American novel of a Radcliffian nature".
