Ferrier's first novel was praised by Mrs. Piozzi as "the newest and merriest; 'tis a very comical thing." Scott thought of her as his "sister shadow" and praised her ability in Scottish fiction. Long very popular, but hard to find these days, Ferrier's comedies of Scottish life and character are still highly enjoyable. Biographical introduction by Ferrier's four times great nephew, His Honour Judge Irvine. Originally published in 1818. Paperback in Very Good condition. Three Rivers Books. 1984. Paper. USED. $40.00
