In the 1820s-1840s, it was a well-established tradition for writers, many of them women, to write about a specifical regionally inflected location. These village sketches proliferated in magazines, annuals, and gift books of the era. This title is a memoir of Portsmouth, NH. A nice copy of a scarce book.
