About this Item

Very scarce book written by Dr. A.M. Reid, Principal of the Steubenville Female Seminary which was founded in 1829 by Hetty Beatty. The school was the first of its kind in the Northwest Territory and Hetty served as teacher and principal until it ws turned over to Dr. Reid in the 1850's. It closed in 1898 . This is a slim book of just 41 pages, nicely bound with beveled edges to boards and no cracking to hinges either front or back. Former owner's name is written on first blank page and dated 1906. The contents are quite nice. Faulta are exterior - wear to top and bottom of spine with some of cloth missing on both (see photo). Corners are also slightly worn. Hetty Eliabeth Beatty had no children of her own and was the third wife of Rev. Charles C. Beatty, pastor of the first Presbbyerian Church of Steubenville. She is not lost to time -- a current active chapter of the Questers took her name for their chapter and replaced her crumbling gravestone with a new one. Book measures 7" x 9".

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
