About this Item

Frontispiece portrait of Nicholas Brown. 26 pp. 8vo. Tan printed paper wraps. Sewn A memoir, written by Professor William Gammell of Brown University, of the ancestry and good works of Nicholas Brown, scion of the family dating in America from 1636. He was the son of Nicholas Brown, one of the four brothers who strongly influenced the course of the history of Rhode Island and Brown University through their mercantile and beneficent activities. The younger Nicholas Brown continued these activities, forming a new mercantile house, Brown & Ives, which engaged in the China Trade, among others. He helped form the Providence Athenaeum, the First Baptist Church in America and The Butler Hospital for the Insane; he supported Brown University magnanimously, contributing 3 buildings and much land among other gifts; he was a supporter of Providence's poor and the community itself in many ways and contributed to many religious, charitable and educational institutions outside of Rhode Island. The American Journal of Education was originally published as The American Journal of Education and College Review, edited by Absalom Peters and Henry Barnard, the noted reformer of education, in 1855. After issuing v. 1, no. 1-2 (Aug. 1855-Jan. 1856), the partnership dissolved, with Peters continuing the original publication, and Barnard establishing the American journal of education. Inscribed by John Carter Brown Woods (1851-1930), Great Grandson of Nicholas Brown William Gammell (1812-89) was Professor of English Literature, of History and Political Economy at Brown in the mid-nineteenth century Wear along foredge of spine at foot.
