Boston: Hilliard, Gray, 1836. First edition (Rivlin, 451; NCBEL v.3, 949). In Two Volumes. Original green embossed cloth, vine pattern, lettered in gilt. A collection of contributions to the Monthly Repository. While in the United States Miss Martineau was advised, because there were insufficient laws to protect international copyright, to publish in order to dicourage any un-authorized edition from England - an English edition was never published. A contemporary gift inscription: "L. Bradford from her friend Louisa Loring." A little wear, spines somewhat darkened. In each copy, moderate foxing to the binder's leaves and prelims, light thereafter. A Very Good copy.
