Hartford: S. Andrus and Son, 1845. Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) was a prolific and sometimes controversial writer of essays, novels, history, and children's literature; sometimes called "the first modern sociologist;" she was a rather spectacular intellectual figure of her time. This is a Very Good copy of a Later Printing of the First American Edition from two years earlier (1843). Uncommon to scarce. Brown publisher's cloth binding; covers ruled and embossed; spine ruled and with gilt lettering. Clean text; 182 pages. Despite occasional spotting, the text is bright, quite clear and readable today. There is a contemporary (1848) inscription on the second free endpaper. Corners are mildly bumped; rubbing to head and foot of spine. An attractive small volume from an important literary figure.. Later Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall.
