My Daughter, A Poem

Gregory, Richard


Morgan & Yeager



6 leaves, printed on one side only. Each with engraved text and a hand-colored engraved vignette. (12mo) 13x10.5 cm (5x4¼") original engraved wrappers.

This poem formed part of a series of seven similar works collected under the title Grateful Tributes, published in London around 1812. As separate works, these titles were issued by various publishers, and ascribed to various authors, though the format remained fairly consistent. Gregory is the author of note, though this title is also attributed to Mary Elliott. The lesson of the poem is that a daughter's role is to learn from the mother, then care for her through old age and infirmity, through to death. OCLC records 7 copies, all on the East Coast. Shoemaker 16343. Rosenbach 633
