About This Item

New York: J. N. Stearns, 1870. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Octavo. Bound by the publisher in plain brown cloth with gilt spine decoration. Spine ends worn, but internally clean, bright, and crisp, with the original yellow endpapers preserved. Overall, a solidly very good copy. Early 20th century bookstore stamp on the front free endpaper. SIGNED by the publisher (likely also the compilor), J. N. Stearns, on the front paste-down, and also bearing the pencilled signature of one James A. Briggs, a notable Clevelander and member of the Temperance Society. 48 tracts in all. There is no Contents page, but some titles include "Is Alcohol Food?" "Who is Safe?" "Drunkenness and Christian Love," and many others. While not dated, there are several references to events in 1868 (and some earlier), so we presume it dates to about 1870, and not much later, considering the materials used. Though known to libraries, this volume is scarce in commerce, and likely moreso in this condition and with the associations on the front paste-down. A desirable volume dating from the height of the Temperance movement.

About Cleveland Book Company

As a small, independent bookseller in Cleveland, Ohio, I deal in general used, rare, and antiquarian books, autographs, manuscripts, pamphlets, and personal and family papers in all subjects. My family has been in the antiquarian book business since 1971. Are you moving, downsizing, or doing some spring cleaning? Did you inherit or otherwise come into some old books? Or, maybe you've collected modern novels from the last thirty or fifty years. No matter what kinds of books you have, we'd love to take a look at them! We travel throughout Ohio, western Pennsylvania and New York, southern Michigan, and eastern Indiana, and will travel farther in some cases to look at whole libraries or even just a few particularly interesting books. Give us a call at (216) 352-3940 and we can talk more about the kinds of books you have.
