Comments¶ The scarce collected verse of Samuel Woodworth (1784-1842), with a 10-page biographical sketch of the author by the publishers, Abraham Asten and Matthias Lopez, who state that one of the purposes of publication is to help relieve Woodworth's pecuniary misfortunes. Woodworth, poet, printer, playwright and journalist, was a regular and interesting fixture in the Knickerbocker literary scene.
