[94], morocco album, smooth spine, divided into four panels by black rules, covers with double panel design blocked in black, gilt roll to edge and inner edge, a.e.g. Heavily rubbed to extremities, small tear to head of spine, slightly chipped to spine ends, slightly browned to edges internally, otherwise fairly bright and clean. Volume of manuscript poetry by an 'Isabella' of Madingley (presumably the village near Cambridge), mainly written between 1867 and 1870, clearly legible and each dated to foot, with an attractive hand-drawn title page. Seemingly written out at her mother's request, "I heartily wish they were more worthy their acceptance, but perhaps they may regard with leniency the numerous imperfections"
