Zilpha and Maria, the rival female orphans

Boston: n.p., [1848]. 8vo, pp. 32; vignette title page and woodcut text illustration; original yellow printed wrappers with woodcut on lower cover; upper cover lacking about 30%, light foxing and soiling, particularly to first few leaves, last couple leaves with a small tear on fore-edge. Wright 1, 1058a, but an un-noted variant. Where Wright records the cover title as "written by M. Gray," our copy is "written by A. Lady," making it perhaps the earlier state of the first edition. A story of one well-off, virtuous orphan, and the poor, deceitful orphan who lies about her in the name of love. Item #53737
