Description

The Beecher-Tilton War. Theodore Tilton’s Full Statement of the Great Preacher’s Guilt. What Frank Moulton Had to Say. The Documents and Letters from Both Sides. New York: A BOOK OF REFERENCE, [1874?] 9 ¾ in x 6 in. Illustrated paper wrapper, illustrated with portraits of Mrs. Tilton, H.W. Beecher, and Theodore Tilton on the front cover, with the price of 25 cents; and, the back cover is an advertisement soliciting agents for the “Family Journal,” the address of which was 300 Broadway, New York. 96 pages, printed on good paper. Four full-page lithographed portraits: Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, Mrs. Elizabeth R. Tilton, Francis D. Moulton, and Theodore Tilton. The absence of an author’s or publisher’s name raises the possibility that this was an effort of Victoria Woodhull or someone close to her. Someone assembled this material so it would let the persons involved in the scandal Victoria Woodhull precipitated speak in their own words. Woodhull’s inclusion does not necessarily remove her from consideration as the impetus behind this book’s publication. Five copies are listed in NUC. This copy has been expertly cleaned and minor tears have been mended, otherwise a near-fine copy.The Beecher and Tilton War | Henry Ward Beecher’s Adultery Trial
