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

A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT. [Publisher's Prospectus / Salesman's Dummy]. Mark Twain. A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT. [Publisher's Prospectus / Salesman's Dummy]
New York: Chas. L. Webster & Co. 1889. First American edition. Publisher's prospectus or salesman's dummy, with half-title page, frontis illustration, title page, contents page, "List of Illustrations" page [stating illustrations not complete], preface, 63 pages of text, 15 pages of illustrations, and publisher's sample advertisements. The 32-page subscription form section has been torn out (the salesman must have sold them all). One of the two samples of the leather spines on inside front cover is missing, but the fold out-front cover and spine example for the cloth issue is attached to the rear pastedown and is in nice condition. The front cover shows the three-quarter leather option and the full, decorated leather option serves as the rear cover. Marbled paper example used as front endpaper and eventual endpaper for the cloth issue used as rear free endpaper--the latter paper is worn on edges and a little loose, but otherwise, although showing relatively minor wear on edges this rare dummy/prospectus is in decent condition, especially considering its use.
