About This Item

Printed by W. Nicol, late Bulmer & Co. London. 1822. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. (9.3 x 6.1 inches). Illustrated title, 56pp, 7 full page engravings, each with a plain tissue guard. Aside from some light spotting to the tissue guards this is a bright and clean copy throughout. Finely bound in nineteenth century full burgundy morocco. Spine with four wide raised bands, each with gilt box ruling. Compartments triple ruled and lettered in gilt. Boards with five ruled line gilt borders. Board edges and turn-ins with gilt decorative roll. All edges gilt. Yellow coated endpapers. Some minor wear to the edges of the binding but overall a very good and attractive copy of this rare work, both inside and out. Contains a lithographed title page illustrating both sides of the medal of the Outinian Societ and seven full page plates; portrait frontispiece of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania; Lady Juliana Penn; Vice-Admiral Sir William Penn; Thomas Penn; a memorial urn dedicated to the memory of Lady Juliana; the remnant of the Great tree at Stoke Park under which the treaty was held between William Penn and the Original Natives of America; and another, different portrait of Penn. --- Sabin lists the author as John Penn (1760 - 1834), Grandson of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania and also, incorrectly, only calls for 6 plates. The anonymous publication of a poem titled "Marriage", in a Monthly Magazine issue during the summer of 1815, inspired Penn to organise The Matrimonial Society, which he established in early 1817 and which had for its object an improvement in the domestic life of married persons. It later extended its aims to include other schemes of domestic utility, and the society re-named itself the Outinian Society. During the summer of 1818 meetings of the society took place at Penn's house in London's Spring Gardens, and later at Stoke Park, Buckinghamshire, the family home purchased by his father in 1760. Penn, who acted as president, edited the works of the society for publication. The Second Lecture appeared in 1819, the General Address of the Outinian Lecturer in 1822, Records of the Origin and Proceedings of the Outinian Society in 1822, A Proposal of the Outinian Society in 1823 (written by Penn), and the Seventh Outinian Lecture in 1823. The society was still existing in 1825. Sabin 26864.
