35 Ainsworth, William Harrison The Miser's Daughter (in two volumes): From the Novels of William Harrison Ainsworth Volumes XVIII & XVIX Windsor Edition
London Gibbings & Company, Limited 1902 Hardcover Very Good No Jacket Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall 
Red cloth stamped in gilt. Top edges gilt. Boards are clean and square with mild wear at extremities. Spines slightly sun faded. Lovely stamped Art Nouveau blank book plates in front end papers. Tanning in end papers and pages lightly toned from age. Sound bindings. Volume I is 282 pages and Volume II is 270 pages. Four photogravures in each volume from the original etchings by George Cruikshank. William Harrison Ainsworth (1805 - 1882) was an English historical novelist. He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. The Miser's Daughter was published in a serialized form in the Ainsworth's Magazine with some overlap with Windsor Castle. George Cruikshank served as illustrator. The work was later published in novel format, but it did not include all of the illustrations used in the magazine. The novel is a historical romance that describes a young man pursuing the daughter of a miserly rich man during the 18th century.

Linus Pierpont Brocket published Woman: Her Rights, Wrongs, Privileges, and Responsibilities in response to John Stuart Mill's essay, The Subjection of Women (1869). He concludes that women gaining the right to the ballot is unnecessary as they had already made so many gains in society, and that gaining the vote would be an "unjust burden." He also discussed concern that women gaining the vote would only open the "flood gates," implying that it would only follow that other groups would gain the right to vote, including negros, the Chinese and Japanese among others. Fascinating in the context of today's political climate and how many things have changed, while others have changed little.

The book inculcated readers with ideas of chivalry and staunch Catholicism and stressed the importance of the heart's knowledge over intellectual learning by presenting historical figures as role models. Digby's revival of medieval principles helped young men of his day construct their idea of what being a "gentleman" means.
