1835-37 Copperplate Manuscript. Pretty Handwritten Original Poetry, Prose Etc.:
A very nice item.
A manuscript book from 1835-37. There are 48 pages of hand written poetry etc in very attractive copperplate writing.
Much of the poetry appears to be original writing by the owner, Mary Anne Bourne, as she has signed many of them and those that are not hers she has credited to the correct authors.
The book is in good firm condition, half leather binding with marbled boards.
On the front endpaper are written dates and addresses - Chelsea, London, March 1835 - Brooklyn, NewYork, December 1835 - Buffalo, N.Y. March 1st 1837.
A very attractive and unique book, heading for 200 years old.
