About this title

Synopsis:

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1837 edition. Excerpt: ... the jury in a few minutes concluded that Captain Howes was exactly correct in calling him "von tam tiefe, and de raskally sheat." When called up for sentence on Saturday, he produced two recommendations, in one of which he is called Monsieur Lesise, and designated as singularly skilful in the cure of hard and soft corns. In the other he is called Monsieur Dilleg, who is very expert in extracting teeth, without giving the patient any pain; but had he possessed a specific for softening Judge Thacher's charge, or drawing the teeth of Mr. Parker's biting argument, it would have stood him in better stead, in the hour of his peril.

By availing himself of the means therein for personal and professional improvement, it was also hoped he would not only come out a better man, but a better dentist and corn-doctor. But all these gratifying hopes were only entertained to be disappointed; for in less than two hours after he was temporarily remanded to jail, he cut his throat from ear to ear with a razor. At dinner time, the turnkey found him lying on his face on his bed, dead. This is the third suicide, within a year, of convicts, in jail, subject to sentences to the State Prison..__. contrary to the laws of Massachusetts. Both fined $5,00 and costs.

Store Description

Member: Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, Southern New England Antiquarian Booksellers. "One of the finest in N.E. (&) the premier used book shop on Cape Cod." - Used Book Lover's Guide. We are a general used and rare book shop with about 70,000 volumes. Located half way between Falmouth and Hyannis (4632 Falmouth Rd, Rte 28), we are named in honor of the famous colonial era printer and philanthropist, founder (1812) of the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester. We started in Worcester in 1969, and moved to the Cape in 1990. Impressed with architectural craftmanship, in Worcester we were stewards and renewers of a decorative Queen Anne Victorian. Here on the Cape we take care of the newest (1860) Crocker family home in the village of Cotuit, part of the town of Barnstable: a tall peaked Italianate Victorian now painted pink and four other colors. The owner's training has included work in four libraries and apprenticeship with bookseller Irving Ephraim (1908-1989) of Worcester who began his own career during the depression. Able assistants have always been and known the meaning of 'book people.' Remembering with fondness Mr. E. and the enormous influence of our home town librarians, we try to continue their tradition of service. Inquiries and orders gratefully received. 508-428-2752. isthomas@aol.com. www.isaiahthomasbooks.com.Please visit us in our open shop on Cape Cod. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-5.
