She then began writing fiction, having a particular favoritism toward gothic romances with female leads. Works of Spofford's include Sir Rohan's Ghost (1860), The Servant Girl Question (1881), and Old Madame, and Other Tragedies (1900). Small stain on upper margin. Corners lightly worn and creased. Lightly toned. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Paper fragment on verso. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
