Comments

A posthumous collection of over 75 essays and sketches "shrewdly designed to appeal to the intellectual and ethical interests of teenagers" (DNB) by Jane Taylor (1783-1824), author of several popular works for children, which were often written with her sister Ann. They began collaborating on literary projects as children when they formed their own literary circle called the "Umbelliferous Society." See the DNB.
