Toledo, Ohio: L. J. King, .
Original Wrappers. Third Edition. 8vo.; stapled pamphlet with photographic illustrations; 75 pages; sensationalism at its most sensational -- “Filthy and Loathsome Punishments in a Roman Catholic Convent”; “Escaped, Pursued, and Forced Back to the Convent”; “Rome’s Hatred of Women”; and so on. The ads for “Protestant Books You Should Read” are dramatic too: e.g. “Black Convent Slave” has “a number of full page engravings, showing how infants are smothered, etc.”~~Most uncommon in commerce, and with few institutional holdings as well.~~Trace of damp evident to the bottom of the last half of the text of the pamphlet.
Very Good binding.
