Discipline: A Novel.

SKU: 10280

Mary Brunton [1778-1818] was a Scottish novelist whose books were quite popular. Austen commented in a letter on her novel Self Control that was published in 1809. This book was published in 1814. Brunton was happily married, and apparently encouraged by her husband to acquire education and to write, yet she could write of women struggling in a man's world. This novel added some Highland scenes, all the rage while Scott's Waverley was popular. Cloth cover is drab and worn. A previous owner signed inside the front of the book in 1865 and there is a gift signature in 1897. The pages are clean and the printing is easy to read. G. Routledge & Co., London. 1952.
