Emily Eden (1797–1869)

Eden, Emily. An English novelist and descriptive writer; born in Westminster, March 3, 1797; died at Richmond, Surrey, Aug. 5, 1869. Her ‘Semi-Detached House’ (1859) and ‘Semi-Attached Couple’ (1860) possess realistic charm; while ‘Portraits of the People and Princes of India’ (1844), and other impressions of travel, do equal honor to her descriptive excellence.
