A wonderful association copy-- inscribed on the flyleaf by the poet's son, Charles James Sprague, who wrote the biographical introduction: "Nelly / with the love of the poet's son! / Dec. 1. 1878." Sprague has also made a pencil correction of a date and has written a three-line pencil explanation of an erroneous family tradition on the first page of his biography. Laid in is a folded sheet on which is printed a poem by the younger Sprague, entitled "C.S.", about his father.

In addition to poems, the collection includes an 1825 oration on American Independence, and an 1827 oration On Intemperance.
