My Daughter.

Philadelphia: Morgan & Yeager, 1824. 12mo. 6ff. Illustrated with hand-colored wood engravings throughout. 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. Couched in these verses and accompanying illustrations is the message that a daughter's role is to learn from the mother, then care for her through old age and infirmity until her death. The present copy, in original printed wrappers, is complete, showing some chipping along the spine and a faint marginal dampstain. Item #27802

(Shoemaker 16343; Rosenbach 633).
