Philadelphia: Morgan & Yeager, 1824. 12mo. 6ff. Illustrated with colored wood engravings throughout. Printed on one side only. 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 illustration is the message that a daughter's role is to learn from the mother, then care for her through old age and infirmity, through to death. The present copy, in original printed wrappers, is complete, and shows some chipping along spine, and a faint marginal dampstain. Item #27802
