Good with no dust jacket. A clean, tight copy withdrawn from a college library. Markings are minimal, and the text is pristine. There are black felt tip marks along all three edges. The text is not affected. This is a collection of letters, the first one dated 1834, the last 1848. Since the author died in 1893, clearly these are not the last word from her, but you will find much of interest in her keen observations about womens' rights, slavery, the theater scene in Europe, and much more.; Ex-library.
