Marie, Jane:

THE CASE OF JANE MARIE, EXHIBITING THE CRUELTY AND BARBAROUS CONDUCT OF JAMES ROSS, TO A DEFENCELESS WOMAN. WRITTEN AND PUBLISHED BY THE OBJECT OF HIS CRUELTY AND VENGEANCE, AND ADDRESSED TO THE PUBLIC OF PHILADELPHIA AND THE WHOLE OF PENNSYLVANIA.

Sep, [Philadelphia]: 1808 28pp, disbound, lightly tanned. Very Good. Ms. Marie claims that Ross, formerly a U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, by subtle legal artifices wrested title to her home from her. Ross was running for governor in the year of this publication, and it is not difficult to believe that this item was a set-up by his political opponents. Indeed, Ms. Marie enlisted the aid of the 'Aurora' and William Duane, whose anti-Federalist leanings were obvious. A 2-page Appendix consists of material sent to the Aurora for publication on the matter. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 44560. AI 15493 [10].
