A FULL REPORT OF THE HIGHLY INTERESTING BREACH OF PROMISE CASE: John J. Gaul, and Mary H. His Wife.

New York: New-York Transcript, (1835). Presumed first edition of this narrative. 27 pages of densely packed, small type. Harvard University, in the introduction to their web-based "Studies in Scarlet" digital collection, notes that tracts such as these are "especially valuable as sources for the study of the history of women, [as] the cases involve not only trials for divorce, domestic violence, bigamy, seduction, breach of promise to marry, and the custody of children but also those for murder and rape." In this particular case the plaintiff has brought suit against the woman to whom he was engaged because she married another. Disbound, faded and stained, though wholly legible. TRIAL NARRATIVE IN WHICH A PLAINTIFF SUES FOR DAMAGES AFTER BEING JILTED.
