About this Item

Two vols. 8vo, pp. 395, 372. Portraits. Presentations on the end paper, hinges starting, some dust soiling. A good set. Gibbons, a Quaker, was active during her long life in work toward social reform and, during the Civil War, relief for the wounded. "Antislavery and prison reformer, Civil War nurse and welfare worker, [Gibbons 1801-1893] was born in Philadelphia"[NAW]. She both taught school and worked with her mother in running a tea shop. While in NY, she was active in the Manhattan antislavery society where she came to know prominent abolitionists. While breaking with the Quakers who had disowned her father and her husband because of their abolitionist works she maintained her interest in a wide variety of reform causes including temperance and the abolition of the death penalty.
