My Adopted Country: a Poem. Part I: Freedom's Bower. Part II: The Emigrant. Part III: Life in the West

New York: J.C. Riker, 1851. First Edition. Rogers, a British emigrant to the United States, here offers an extended patriotic ode in three parts, interspersed with lengthy prose passages of explication. Among these is included the text of the author's "Address to the People of the United States...Delivered at the Society Library, June 8, 1848;" in this rather eccentric call for the abolition of the British monarchy, the author advances the idea that "....the masses of England and Ireland, having fraternized, they should seek to become annexed to the United States." Final leaf advertises the author's "George Washington ... a Democratic Poem." SABIN 72648. 12mo (18.5cm). Publisher's brown cloth, decoratively stamped in blind on front and rear covers; title in blind on spine; 74,(2)pp; illus. Board edges sunned; a bit of wear at spine ends; Very Good. Three inserted leaves of plates; one signed by Asher Durand.
