On the Penitentiary System in the United States and Its Application in France; with an Appendix on Penal Colonies, and Also, Statistical Notes. Translated from the French, with an Introduction, Notes and Additions by Francis Lieber. Cohen 4225
The only edition in English of "a classic in the science of punishment", much enriched and even altered in its tone and emphases by Lieber's notes and additions, and going much of the way in establishing Lieber's own reputation in penal reform. Modern 1/2 black morocco over marbled boards, a bit strained and some light browning, but a good crisp untrimmed copy. Carey, Lea & Blanchard, Philadelphia, 1833.
