        TEXTS FOR EVERY DAY IN THE YEAR, principally Practical and Devotional. Selected by Elizabeth Fry.

      London, printed for Hamilton, Adams, and Co; Edmund Fry; and W. Darton and Son, Holborn Hill, circa 1838. EDITION UNKNOWN, Preface dated 1831, INSCRIBED BY ELIZABETH FRY THE PRISON REFORMER on the verso front endpaper: "Mary Bullied from Eliz. Fry 1838", very small 8vo, approximately 72 x 54 mm, 2 7/8 x 2 inches, pages: iv, (188), collation: (A)-M8, M8 is a blank with printer's name J. Masters at the foot on recto, bound in mid brown cloth with embossed pattern, "TEXTS" in gilt on upper cover, pale yellow endpapers. Very slight wrinkling to spine, ink note in 2 margins, otherwise a very good clean tight copy. Elizabeth Fry was a Quaker prison reformer who transformed the lives of countless thousands of prisoners, convicts and homeless people, and whose ideas on criminal justice are still practised today. It was Stephen Grellet, a Quaker, who turned her attention to the shocking conditions in which women prisoners and their children lived at Newgate Prison: hungry, cold, dirty, without bedding, even newborn babies without clothing. Elizabeth's first visit to the prison with baby clothes and kindness established a rapport with the women. Soon she set up the first women's prison visiting committees and went on to bring order and cleanliness to Newgate.She started the first-ever prison school which was a great success. Later she saw to it that the prisoners were given useful occupation and taught skills. Uniquely for that time, she saw the prisoners as individual human beings and understood their need for self-respect. Her ideas and practices were to be influential and effective throughout Europe and eventually the world. All this Elizabeth did not accomplish on her own; she travelled widely in Britain, Ireland and Europe and everywhere she went her extraordinary compassion, eloquence and energetic common sense galvanised others into action'.

        L'Assedio di Calais Melodramma lirico in tre Atti Poesia di Salvatore Cammarano... Riduzione del Mo. L. Gervasi... Prezzo Fr. 30. Fl. 11.30.cm. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: Gio Ricordi [PNs 9678-9689; 9692; 9697; 9697 1/2; 9960-9961], 1838. First Edition. Scarce. Giuseppe Angeloni et al., Gaetano Donizetti, p. 178. Laterza: Il Catalogo numerico Ricordi 1857, pp. 326, 335. OCLC no. 229882955. L'assedio di Calais, to a libretto by Cammarano after Pierre Du Belloy, was first performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples on November 19, 1836. "In the 19th century L'assedio di Calais had no more than a single run of performances at the S Carlo between 1836 and 1840. An enterprising recording by Opera Rara in 1989 opened the public's eyes to the work's many merits. Originally designed by Donizetti as a passport to the Paris Opéra, it contains an integral divertissement (in which however only two of the four dances are Donizetti's). This was then an unusual feature as almost all Italian operas of the period were performed as double bills along with full-length ballets. The first two acts of L'assedio contain some excellent ensembles, particularly the prayer at the close of Act 2 ('O sacro polve'), sung as the hostages leave the city hall." William Ashbrook in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Sewn. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f.

Hickes was a bishop of the nonjuring Church of England in Scotland.

Hickes linked Mitchell's story to that of the notorious covenanter Major Thomas Weir [c. 1600-1670], a suspected sorcerer who was executed for bestiality and incest in 1670, in order to demonstrate that fanatical dissenters violated the boundaries of moral law and were capable of committing the most outrageous crimes in the name of religion. A note at the foot of the title page, which identifies the author, reads: "The author calls himself a Scots Addvocate: (p. 46). I rather think him an English Man, probably Dr. Hicks, at that time Chaplane to the Duke of Lauderdale." English Short-Title Catalogue R19059. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Not having heard from him for two years, his wife married [Richard] Smith. Carson returned and, in trying to dispossess Smith of his wife and home, was shot by Smith. The judge practically directed Smith's conviction and he was hanged. Mrs. Carson, who was a rugged individual in her own right, tried to kidnap the governor to save Smith. After his execution she joined a gang of counterfeiters and subsequently died in prison" (McDade). This account went through 2 editions, both in 1838. The second edition is better because it contains additional material, as indicated by the title. Both editions are rare. OCLC locates no copies of the first edition, 4 of the second (American Antiquarian Society, New-York Historical Society, University of Michigan, Yale University) McDade, The Annals of Murder 888.

        Red Bird, A Winnebago

      Philadelphia: J. T. Bowen. Hand-coloured lithograph by J. T. Bowen. Sheet size: 10 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. Fine condition. A rare image in very fine condition, issued only in this format Most of the McKenney and Hall images are available in both folio and octavo format. The present image was only published as the frontispiece to volume II of the octavo edition of McKenney and Hall's History of the Indian Tribes of North America. McKenney wrote: `All eyes were fixed on Red Bird ... of all the Indians I ever saw, he is, without exception, the most perfect in form, in face, and gesture. In height, he is about six feet; straight, but without restraint. His proportions are those of the most exact symmetry, and these embrace the entire man, from his head to his feet.' McKenney goes on to describe his costume and actions in great detail, all in terms of great admiration, but contrasting this with the fact that, according to the law, Red Bird was a murderer. He and two accomplices had murdered a man called Gagnier (a half-Indian half-French settler) and an ex-soldier staying with him. In fact he had acted in accordance with the Indian law, but had surrendered to the authorities to avoid retribution being visited on his people as a whole. Red Bird was taken with one of his accomplices (We-Kau, shown seated to Red Bird's right) to Prairie du Chien, handed over to the civil authority and put in prison, where he died `of crushed hopes, and a broken heart!' Red Bird died in 1838.

        (Catalog of the Anatomical Theatre's Collections at the Breslau University – from one of the Fathers of Modern Teratology). - Neues Verzeichniss der anatomischen Sammlung des Königl. Anatomie-Instituts zu Breslau.

      Breslau, Hirt, 1838.. Octavo. 5 ff., 224 pp. Professional recent marbled boards matching contemporary style. Title with a faint, old library stamp (stating just ‘library copy', but there is no indication there on which library is meant), pages minorily browned, but all together a very good to fine copy. First edition of this catalog of the anatomical collections at the University of Breslau (today Wroc?aw, Poland) counting for more than 12.000 specimen, among which several thousands of zoological and zootomical interest. “Sehr geschätztes Verzeichnis und Beschreibung der Präparaten-Sammlung des anatomischen Instituts zu Breslau” (ADB 24, 744). A first catalog of the museum with only 8.000 (and for a large part different) specimen was published from 1826 to 1833 and according to the author had become obsolet after a huge amount of preparats had been destroyed by intense use and transport and therefore had to be replaced by new and different ones. On top of that also the complete arrangement of the museum had changed significantly in the meantime making it neccessary to publish a new catalog (see preface, f. 3). The author, who graduated as a medician with degrees from the Universities of Greifswald and Frankfurt studied also under Georges Cuvier in Paris and held the position of a professor for anatomy in Breslau from 1813 on. While also being remembered as a zoologist describing quite a number of new species of mammals, birds and especially molluscs for the first time and not only by that contributing to natural history, he was the man behind the new anatomical theatre and museum in Breslau, which was established upon his initiative in the years of 1834/1835. Otto added a wealth of material to the local collections (all to be identified in the catalog by his intials!) and while the main focus of his interest all throughout his career lay on the subject of human and animal malformations, about a fourth of the entries in the catalog describe preparats of such conditions. His efforts for the Breslau anatomical museum and his writings on the subject made Otto one of the most prominent fathers of modern teratology.

        Biographical Sketches and Interesting Anecdotes of Persons of Color to which is added a Selection of Pieces of Poetry

      New York: Trustees of the residuary estate of Lindley Murray, 1838. 408p, third edition of this work that was first published in 1826, period leather-binding (polished calf) with old repairs and edge wear, spine worn with gilt bands but title label absent, period owner's name inked on free front fly leaf, darkened endpapers with foxing and slight foxing throughout. Mott's book was stunning for the period in its attempt to humanize people of color through short biographies, stories demonstrating the humanity of blacks, and evidence of their creativity through poetry. Her sketches range internationally in scope (Sierra Leone, the Caribbean, Liberia, the US), including the well-known (Toussaint L'Ouverture, Phyllis Wheatley), the obscure (Poor Sarah. Billy and Jenny), and Native Americans (Good Old Ruth the Pequot, Margaret Ann Crutchfield). This edition was published during a period of intense violence against abolitionists, particularly women. Mott agreed to have the book's design geared to classroom use. Abigail Field Mott (1766-1851) lived in Westchester County, NY before moving to Burlington, NJ. She was an observant Quaker and aunt by marriage to abolitionist and feminist Lucretia Coffin Mott. In this book, she sought "to encourage virtue and morality in the different classes of society; and by bringing into view the effects which a system of slavery has on the human mind, and the dreadful consequences of that arbitrary power invested in the slaveholder over his fellow-being, to show how it hardens the heart and petrifies the feelings.
