THE CASTLES OF ATHLIN AND DUNBAYNE, A HIGHLAND STORY.

Boston: Printed for the Booksellers, 1829. 214pp. 16mo. Disbound, but sewing still sound and accompanied by what are probably the original medium green glazed boards and loose blank endsheets. Item #WRCLIT82024

An uncommon US printing of Radcliffe's first novel, first published in England in 1789, and then in Philadelphia in 1796. This printing is neither listed nor indexed in American Imprints in the relevant time span, and OCLC locates just six copies (Cornell, UCLA, AAS, Johns Hopkins, Nebraska at Lincoln and Martin Luther College). The title leaf bears the early ownership signature of one "S. Longfellow." There are at least two potentially interesting association possibilities.

Price: $125.00
