Egerton Abbey. ROSAMOND - 19TH CENTURY CHILDREN'S BOOK, Maria Edgeworth.
Egerton Abbey.

Egerton Abbey.

Philadelphia. J. Maxwell. 1822.
Volume is entitled Early Lessons, but the subtitle (No. XVI Egerton Abbey) identifies it as coming from Rosamond, a sequel to Early Lessons. Volume is in paper wraps 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches; corners dog-eared; short tear to free edge of front cover; 33 pp. There are three hand-colored plates. The spine has been reinforced with a strip of marble paper glued to spine edge of front and rear covers; however, the volume's three-hole string binding appears to securely hold the slender booklet together. A WorldCat listing for Rosamond, published by Maxwell in 1821, states "Probably the first American ed. Cf. Slade." The present 1822 booklet appears to come from a serial edition of Rosamond published by Maxwell. Item #50886
