Marriage: its history and
ceremonies: with a phrenological and physiological exposition of the functions
and qualifications for happy marriages.
By L.N. Fowler. New-York: Fowlers & Wells ... and by Booksellers generally, 1847.
A mid-nineteenth century illustrated book about the functions and
qualifications for happy marriages. The at the time very popular
pseudo-science, phrenology constitutes the foundation of the discussion.
Phrenology drew connections between the shape of the human skull and
personality traits. These methods are in varied ways used in this work which
also focuses on psychological approaches to describing happy or unhappy
marriages. Call no. HQ734 .F69 1847 SCDIRB
Forget-me-not, or, The philipena.
By Mrs. Lunt. Lowell [Mass.]: Nathaniel L. Dayton, 1847.
A compilation of love poems published in a miniature volume still in
its original beautifully decorated red binding. The gilt floral motifs and gilt
edges make this piece an attractive example of mid-nineteenth-century book
binding. The text of the book is also carefully printed: the type setting and
the ornamental decoration are both pleasing to the eye. The content must have
been very close to the heart of the creator of this volume. Call no. AY11 .L96 1847 SCDIRB.
