Mrs. Piozzi and Isaac Watts: Being Annotations in the Autograph of Mrs. Piozzi on a Copy of the First Edition of the Philosophical Essays of Watts

Mrs. Piozzi heavily annotated the work by Watts, more famous for his hymns than his essays. Her notated copy was discovered many years after her death. This book contains facsimiles of the original, explanations of the text, and reprints of Mrs. Piozzi's comments from the margins. Adds another dimension to the depth of her critical powers and the variety of her interests. Grafton. First Edition. London: 1934. Hb. USED. $35.00
