"Showing how she came to be concubine to the king; with an account of her untimely end": An uncommon early 19th–century American printing of the ever-popular story of Jane Shore. This version opens with => a delicately hand–colored frontispiece showing an attractive (if anachronistic) lady in Regency dress, signed "E. Prud'homme," i.e., the esteemed artist and banknote engraver John Francis Eugene Prud'Homme. The front wrapper advertises a list of other S. King pamphlets.
Shoemaker 10502. Publisher's printed paper wrappers, roughly sewn, with previous sewing holes showing; sections of chipping to edges, affecting the fore-edge of the front wrapper rather deeply taking border but not text. Pages age-toned with edges untrimmed, moderate foxing and variable staining; frontispiece with old repair to outer edge, small area of insect damage in upper inner margin. => A scarce production, with a nice example of Prudhomme's early work.
