An Address Delivered Before the Students of the Mount Union Seminary, Stark County, Ohio, on Monday Evening, October 10, 1853

Very Good. Item #5721

Columbus: Steam Press of Smith & Cox, Statesman Office, 1853. First Edition, an ex-library copy with the small blind-stamp of Western Reserve Historical Society and "Dup" notation on title page. Octavo; 23 pages. Removed from original wraps (missing). Chip to fore-edge of title page, with no loss to text. Some soiling and wear, but still a good, sound copy.

Gilson's address is particularly notable for his diatribe against fashionable dandies: "They exercise all the meditation of a monk, chanting his orisons, in the choice of a cravat -- discriminate with all the exactness of a German Transcendentalist, in selecting a hat or vest -- and adopt conclusions upon the tastefulness of a button or collar with all the calm deliberation of grave statesmen." OCLC located two copies.
