Xii, 516 pages, frontispiece (portrait) , covers faded, some foxing otherwise very good. Scarce. From the preface: "Another Life of Washington!" Anticipating this very natural exclamation, let the new aspirant be wallowed a few words of explanation, if not apology. Abundant and excellent are the biographies of Washington, certainly. Yet there seems room for one especially adapted to young people, not children, exactly, but the older pupils in our schools and some learners who have done with schools." From Wikipedia: "Her home served as a literary salon and hosted notables including Edgar Allan Poe, William Cullen Bryant, Elizabeth Drew Stoddard, and others. Mrs. Kirkland went abroad in 1848 and again in 1850. She was received by Charles Dickens and the Brownings, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Browning. She also became a close friend and correspondent of Harriet Martineau. Kirkland had considerable fame and accolades from her writings during her lifetime. Poe in particular thought of her as a significant American writer. She was a relatively early American woman writer who appears to have written because she liked to write and only published what she considered to be well written. She wrote for men as well as women but definitely wrote from a female perspective. Her works continue to be studied in relation to style, contributions to American literature and the influence of the female perspective.". N° de réf. du libraire 37004
