Ango-Irish novelist Sydney Morgan (1781-1859) took London by storm with The Wild Irish Girl (1806), a paean of praise to Ireland. She became the companion of the Marquess of Abercorn, who in 1812 arranged her marriage to a surgeon, Sir Thomas Charles Morgan. As a married woman she continued to produce verses, essays and novels, including O'Donnel (1814) - considered her best novel - and France (1817), a breezy, journalistic survey of French society and politics which drew criticism for its praise of the French revolution. Horizontal fold. Toned, esp. on outer margins. Nicked in lower left corner. Corners lightly worn. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
