Philadelphia: Morgan & Yeager, 1824. 12mo (130 x 110 mm), 6ff. printed on one side only, i.e. 3 double-spreads of engraved text illustrated with colored engravings. Lower wrapper has been pasted on to (and obscuring) an ad leaf for works illustrated by William Charles. Original printed wrappers, spine reconstructed, faint marginal dampstain 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. 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 6 copies, noting also a Darton 1812 edition and a Philadelphia 1816 edition. Shoemaker 16343. Rosenbach 633. (Item Id: 6479)
