Descripción

4pp., 12mo. On bifolium with mourning border. 36 lines of text. Good, on aged paper. She fears she has appeared 'most ungracious & unthankful' for not acknowledging his 'kind present of two very pretty and useful books'. She hope he will excuse her, as she 'received them in the country, whither I had gone to recover from a sharp illness'. Since her return 'the dangerous illness of a dear friend' has left her with 'neither thought nor leisure'. She will read the books carefully, and as she meditates 'a neighbourly visit to my good friends Mr & Mrs Cunningham I hope to meet you'. The Scottish poet Allan Cunningham and his wife lived at 27 Lower Belgrave Place. The engraved portrait of Jameson, with a facsimile of her signature, is by 'H Adlard', and shows her 'at the age of 16, from a miniature by her Father'. It is in fair condition, on lightly-aged paper, with traces of glue from mounting on the reverse. N° de ref. de la librería 11498
