This volume contains various personal and family writings, though Cooper never wrote any autobiographical works as such. They are: his account (written long afterwards) of a total solar eclipse he witnessed as a young man home from the sea; two sets of excerpts from his fragmentary diary published by his daughter Susan after his death; his preface to Susan's first novel; and the history he wrote of Cooperstown, his home village, founded by and named after his family.
