Hints Towards Forming the Character of a Young Princess. In Two Volumes

London: T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1805. Hardcover. Hannah More (1745-1833) was a well-known English religious writer, poet, and playwright. She wrote this interesting work to offer her views on the education of the young Princess Charlotte of Wales (1796-1817), the only child of the George IV and heir to the British throne. Her untimely death following the birth of her stillborn son ultimately paved the way for Victoria to become queen in 1837. Bound in contemporary leather with gilt rulings and gilt ornament and title label to spine. Leather is chipped, abraded, and bumped. Gilt is worn and faded. Some foxing to pastedowns and free front endpapers. Interior pages are in very good condition with light browning to text. Ownership signature dated 1844 to front pastedowns. Small octavo volumes. Volume I: 330 pages plus 6 pages of ads; Volume II: 403 pages. ENGHIST/031622. Very Good.
