The rear inner hinge of Volume 4 has pulled a bit, else the books are in fine,
bright condition. The dust wrappers have some minor sunning, and the dust
wrapper to volume 3 lacks a small piece at the base of the spine, but overall
the dust wrappers are in very good condition and a scarce survival
Each volume is housed in the original publisher's
slipcase. The slipcases are generally worn and sunned,
but still serviceable and presentable.
This is likely the nicest set of the Flint Malory in limp
STRICTURES ON THE MODERN SYSTEM OF FEMALE EDUCATION
Charlestown, Printed by Samuel Etheridge, for E. Larkin,,1800. 12mo. Two volumes bound in
one. xi,(1),146; (3)-136pp. Contemporary full sheep; modern black lettering label, gilt, to style on
Hinges and spine tips have been neatly repaired, wear to the edges of the boards, else this is a very
good copy. With the 1801 ownership signature of Elizabeth Cabot on a preliminary blank, and the
armorial bookplate of Charles Jackson on the front pastedown.
More was a contemporary of Johnson, Dryden, and Montague. She was a strong anti-slavery
advocate, and even more determined to edcuate women for their good and that of society. First
published in London in 1799, this is one of the two American editions produced in 1800, the other
published in Philadelphia. We have been unable to establish precedence to our satisfaction.
