Book Description London, John Sharpe, 1822. Hardcover. Book Condition: Poor. 16mo(6 1/2"), 160pps. London;John Sharpe, 1822. Bound with "A Letter to a New-Married Lady" by Mrs. Chapone and "Education: A Fairy Tale" by Miss Talbot. Five black and white illustrations drawn by Richard Westall, R(oyal)A(cademy), and engraved by Charles Rolls. Dr. Gordon, apparently believing himself near death, wrote advice and instructions for his daughters, whose mother had already died, for conducting themselves properly in their future lives. He counseled his daughters on religion; conduct and behavior; amusements; friendship, love, and marriage. The second part, by Mrs. Chapone, is just what the title indicates--advice to a new bride. The third part is a very didactic story, in the form of a fairy tale, about the rewards of living truthfully and honestly. Originally bound in maroon leather, these covers have broken off, and one is missing. The back strip is mostly gone, as well. The text block itself is complete and tightly bound. There is moderate foxing to the pages, heaviest to the plates, and to the facing pages, which show off-setting of the images. The first free endpapers, the frontispiece,and the last endpaper have (water?) stain on the top corners. There is a marbled endpaper at the front, but none at the back. A good candidate for rebinding. Poor. $20.00. Bookseller Inventory # 1308

Book Description T Cadell & W Davies, London, 1808. Full Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. New Edition. A FATHER'S LEGACY TO HIS DAUGHTERS Dr John Gregory. Printed for T Cadell and W Davies. by Wood & Innes, London 1808 New Edition 142pp Hardback. London - Printed for T Cadell & W Davies by Wood & Innes, London.Doctor John Gregory's work on the principles of female education, which provoked a strong reaction from his contemporary, Mary Wollstonecraft. Bound in leather with ornate gilt banding and detail. An early 19th century original binding. Ornate marbelling to paste downs and endpapers with matching marbellings to page edges all round. John Gregory (1724 1773) was an eighteenth-century Scottish physician, medical writer and moralist. In what would become his most famous publication, Gregory wrote Father's Legacy to his Daughters (1761) after the death of his wife in 1761 in order to honour her memory and record her thoughts on female education. Originally Gregory meant only to give the text to his daughters when he died, but his son James published it in 1774; it became a bestseller, going through many editions and translations. In writing this work, he may have been influenced by the celebrated Bluestocking Elizabeth Montagu. The text advises parents and women on religion, moral conduct, friendship and interactions with men, with a focus on marriage. He suggested that women refrain from exposing any learning that they might have, as this would damage their ability to attract a husband. Mary Wollstonecraft would later viciously attack these principles in A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), arguing that Gregory's advice amounted to nothing more than deceit on the part of women. The full leather covers to this copy show considerable sigs of wear, the front board is almost detatched however apart from a neat copper plate inscription with a contemporary date the stock is unmarked and both tight and bright.
