About this Item

401 pages. "In his researches (the author), he has left but little if anything to reward any future inquirer; and, he has advanced far enough to answer his prominent design- to wit, that Howard was the father of Prison Science, and that the present advance state of prison discipline is owing to a return to those very views which, when first advanced by the Philanthropist, were ignorantly spurned. "A fascinating look at the overall view of prisons in the 1850. The first chapter is a historical look at "the prison world before the days of Howard", then moves to Howard's life and onto the prison-world of England and the continent." VERY GOOD HARDCOVER, WITH THE ORIGINAL BLIND STAMPED BOARDS. SOME FOXING IS PRESENT THROUGH OUT THE TEXT. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 003279
