CHANGE FOR THE AMERICAN NOTES: IN LETTERS FROM LONDON TO NEW-YORK. By An American Lady [pseudonym]. New York: Published by Harper & Brothers, No. 82 Cliff-Street, 1843. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] 5-88, printed in double columns, disbound. First U.S. edition. A response to Dickens' AMERICAN NOTES FOR GENERAL CIRCULATION, an account of his 1842 trip to the United States which drew considerable criticism for his generally unfavorable opinion of the country and its inhabitants which Dickens declared was "not the republic I came to see; this is not the republic of my imagination." Wood paints a very dismal picture of society in mid-Victorian England. Sabin 20004. Gimbel H491. Disbound, lacks the printed wrappers and the 4 pages of publisher's ads at front, else a very good copy with clean text and no foxing other than a mild stain or large fox mark to the title leaf.
