New York: J. & J. Harper, 1833. Ann Hasseltine Judson (1789-1826) is acknowledged as the first American female overseas missionary; she also translated several books of the Bible into Burmese and Thai. This is a Very Good Plus copy of the First Edition, Number Fifteen of the "Boys and Girls Library." A very sweet little book. Dark brown pebbled cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine. Frontis portrait of Ann Judson. Clean text; 227 pages (6 pages in the front describing the series). Text is bright and with only scattered foxing and some light floodmarks. There are some pressed leaf designs on the endpapers (charming!), and a page of juvenalia in the rear. Mildly bumped, and with some chipping on the rear cover; really much better condition than usually seen in the cloth books of this period. She was famous in her time, but her works are scarce today. Size: 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. First Edition.
