Frontispiece and title page to Dawn Island by Harriet Martineau. It is a tale that depicts the confrontations between a native island tribe and white British traders. Martineau (1802-76), writer and journalist, undertook an American tour in 1834-6 and her works include 'Society in America' (1837). 'By inheritance a political radical and dedicated dissenter', in George Eliot's estimation she was 'the only English woman that possesses thoroughly the art of writing'.
