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". [Silverman, 2019, Early American Literature]. Rebacked retaining early calf boards. Hinges reinforced. Endpapers chipped and tanned. Tanning throughout. Board edges worn. Internally tanned, but in good shape. [9730, Hyraxia Books].
