Descripción: Philadelphia: printed by T.L. Plowman for John Morgan, 1803., 1803. Full title: AN EPITOME OF MR. FORSYTH'S TREATISE ON THE CULTURE AND MANAGEMENT OF FRUIT-TREES. ALSO, NOTES ON AMERICAN GARDENING AND FRUITS: WITH DESIGNS FOR PROMOTING THE RIPENING OF FRUITS, AND SECURING THEM AS FAMILY COMFORTS: AND FURTHER, OF ECONOMICAL PRINCIPLES IN BUILDING FARMERS' HABITATIONS. BY AN AMERICAN FARMER. [4], 1-186, [4] pages plus fifteen single-sided plates numbered I-XV. Hardcover; H 21cm x L 13cm. Original full leather binding with morocco title label and slender gilt stamped horizontal bars upon spine. Rubbed boards mildly scuffed at edges with corners bumped and worn, spine's gilt stamping remains fairly bright, slight cosmetic splitting at head of rear joint with small chip and short 2.5cm crack at heel. Hinges and binding are firm. Moisture stains and moderate to strong toning to interior leaves with several of the plates severely toned. Front free endpaper's bottom half removed; last two leaves present in book are an Index which ends abruptly at "Peaches" so at least one index leaf is missing as are the rear flyleaf and rear free endpaper. Two-line antiquarian ink signature of "Rich. T. Brownrigg | 1818" on front pastedown. One quire (pages 81-88) slightly pulled. Several foldout plates are no longer aligned to their original folds; top foldout quarter or so of Plate II lacking with large loss to image; Plate XIV has 7.5cm vertical paper loss along lower fold but with relatively small loss to image. A Scottish botanist and a founding member of the Royal Horticultural Society as well as the namesake of the genus forsythia, William Forsyth (1737-1804) first published A TREATISE ON THE CULTURE AND MANAGEMENT OF FRUIT TREES in London in 1802 with New York City and Philadelphia editions issued the same year plus London and Albany (NY) editions in 1803. This book, AN EPITOME OF MR. FORSYTH'S TREATISE, has two additional plates with text edited and amended for American pomologists by William Cobbett (1763-1835) writing pseudonymously as "By an American Farmer" and emphasizes growing and pruning fruit trees and vines including such plants as apricots, plums, nectarines, pears, figs, quinces, gooseberries, currants, barberries, raspberries, walnuts, etc. A secondary title leaf on page 123: "Notes on Fruits and American Gardening; With Designs for Promoting the Ripening of Fruits, and Securing Them as Family Comforts: and Further, of Economical Principles in Building Farmers' Habitations, etc." Bibliographical reference for this 1803 Plowman-Morgan Philadelphia edition is Shaw & Shoemaker #4217; a separate 1803 edition was also published in Philadelphia but with the imprint of T.L. Plowman-E. Sargeant & Co. This copy has an interesting 19th century North Carolina and Mississippi connection as the Brownrigg family established American roots circa 1760 when patriarch Richard Brownrigg (1735-1771) settled in North Carolina after immigrating from Wicklow County, Ireland. His son, Thomas J. Brownrigg (1767-1826), owned the "Wingfield" estate near Edenton in Chowan County, North Carolina. In turn, his son, General Richard Thomas Brownrigg (1793-1847), provider of the aforementioned front pastedown signature, settled in Columbus, Mississippi in 1835 upon purchasing two thousand acres for a cotton plantation and constructed his family's manor house, Temple Heights, which still stands today. This book presumably traveled in General Brownrigg's wagon caravan from North Carolina to Mississippi. The Brownrigg Family Papers are held by the Wilson Library Manuscripts Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Still a handsome book as the exterior cosmetics are solid but graded as only good for the interior faults. Nº de ref. de la librería 214-9426

No Jacket. 1st Edition. Two separate publications bound within single book. Paged as i-vi, 7-104, i-xvi, 1-168. Hardcover: H 21.75cm x L 14.75cm. Mid-nineteenth century quarter leather binding; spine's brown calf leather scuffed, spine heel nearly worn even with text block's bottom edge, shallower loss and tearing at spine head, spine minimally decorated with gilt bars delineating six compartments, gilt title lettering "Magdalen | Facts" in second compartment from top remains reasonably bright; marbled paper boards with worn and bumped leather corners, shelf-wear along bottom board edges too. Slender splitting lengthwise along front joint and front hinge shaken leaving front board with some pliability; rear joint/hinge firm; text block binding is firm. Toned text block edges appear to have once been marbled but with that effect now quite faded. Some foxing throughout. Front free endpaper appears to be adhered to front pastedown. Antiquarian ink signature (J. Young?) at top of Magdalen title page with title and imprint as: MAGDALEN FACTS. NO. 1. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1832. New York: printed for the author, 1832. Author is J.R. McDowall [John Robert McDowall] as credited on page vi at conclusion of "To the Public" prefatory essay. Top corner of pages 27-28 lacking but with no loss of text; creases at bottom corners of pages 67-68 and 89-90 from past fold-ins. Total of three woodcut illustrations with two titled as "The Female Penitentiary of the County and City of New York" and "An Internal View of Night Rooms Without Beds" upon title page and an untitled room image on page 3. Text comprised of Numbers 1-38, the last on page 104 being a musical score with lyrics titled "The Magdalen" by Reverend Philip Hawker. Numbers 1-37 are separate reports, stories, and even cautionary tales regarding imprisoned and fallen women mostly of the Five Points neighborhood of New York City (but with Numbers 18 and 19 regarding the Baltimore and Philadelphia Magdalen Societies, No. 20 "The Boston Female Penitent's Refuge," and No. 21 "London Vices and Female Penitentiary") by Presbyterian minister John Robert McDowall, a pioneering crusader against the evils of prostitution and the tragedies wrought upon young women often forced or manipulated into the sex trade. McDowall's focus on the taboo topic of sex and the downtrodden in 1830s New York brought him much notoriety and incited much opposition culminating in the loss of his remaining support after an 1834 grand jury determined he was promoting lewdness. McDowall died in 1836 at the youthful age of 35 and his now rare MAGDALEN FACTS is among the earliest American tracts publicizing the deleterious effects of prostitution upon individuals and society. AmericanaExchange cites but one copy at auction in original plain wrappers sold by Swann Galleries in February 1985.
