Anna, Lady Miller entry: Overview screen.
Anna or Anne Riggs (later ALM) was born in London
20 September 1770
ALM dated the first letter she sent her mother
after leaving Paris
on her way to Italy
with her husband
, which became her travel book.
By March 1775
ALM both edited and contributed to the first volume of Poetical Amusements at a Villa near Bath
, to which she later added a series of three more volumes, the last by May 1781.
An anonymous 18-page pamphlet entitled On Novelty: and On Trifles, and Triflers. Poetical Amusements at a Villa near Bath
reads like comment on ALM's Batheaston Vase; it is not clear why library catalogues ascribe it to her authorship.
By May 1781
ALM issued the final volume of Poetical Amusements at a Villa near Bath
