New York: C. Wiley, 1819. First edition (BAL 6960). Nineteenth century full brown calf, two gilt-lettered black leather spine labels, spine decorated in gilt, gilt inner dentelles; signed Riviere & Son. 'Fanny' was "...a satire on New York society...which was so popular that he (Halleck) added 50 stanzas to it two years later." BAL describes a piracy with the same date which was produced after the 1821 second edition; the present copy is the genuine first edition. A gift inscription on the first front flyleaf: “For the accomplished grandniece of the Author from her greatest admirer; Dated one hundred years after publication.” Someone has provided in pencil the names of Halleck’s victims, which had been disguised by asterisks in the text. Complete with half-title. Published anonymously; an engraved portrait of a young Halleck has been tipped in opposite the title. The front board expertly re-attached, some wear to spine gilt but nice labels. Boards a little worn. A Very Good copy
