About this Item

First edition of the life of one of the great temperance speakers. Gough was born in England and at 12 years of age came to America, where he became a bookbinder before his heavy drinking led to the failure of that career and his subsequent attempts to make a living as a singer, storyteller, and actor in New York. Binding: Contemporary dark green cloth, covers with blind-stamped foliate border, spine with similar design and gilt-stamped title; front free endpaper with pressure-stamp of Benjamin Bradley's Boston bindery ? at which company Gough worked for a few months in late 1837 before being fired for presenting a shabby appearance. 8vo (17.5 cm, 6.8"). [4], 172 pp. American Imprints 45-2792. Binding as above, very slightly cocked, spine darkened, extremities lightly rubbed; front and back fly-leaves excised. Scattered mild to moderate foxing and a few mild to moderate instances of stain; a few corners dog-eared. A very readable copy, with the added attraction of the Bradley connection.
