Price: $30.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Fair


351pp. + pagination running from page 34-96 (perhaps the April and or May 1846 issue, but lacking the first 33 pages in this second section, I cannot say for certain). Bound in contemporary half red leather over patterned brown cloth with spine lettering and decoration stamped in gilt. Illustrated with lovely engravings, one for each whole issue (ten steel engravings, the July 1845 engraving is lacking). Lacking the hand colored botanical prints that are usually found with this volume. The editor was the brother-in-law to the famous Samuel G. Goodrich, known to young readers in the States at the time as "Peter Parley" and was also pastoring in New York City. He graduated from Yale in 1828. Historical articles on Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield. Recollections of revivals. Contributions from J.T. Headley from his book on Italy. Interesting piece titled, "Popular Tastes and Amusements" which condemns, among other things, "black face" minstrel shows. It also condemns an act by the name of "Hervio Nano" which was a "human fly" act where the performer climbed up walls and across ceilings using ropes. The writer also slams P.T. Barnum's "Museum", but not by name. Interesting letter to the editor on the evils of reading novels. Corners bumped and rubbed through. Spine ends heavily rubbed. Boards unevenly sunned. Offsetting to the endpapers and pastedowns. Ownership inscription in faint pencil on the second prelim. Fair condition, owing to the missing plates.
