GRAY, FRANCIS C. [CALLEY]. - Prison Discipline in America.

London, Murray 1848. Octavo half morocco; 203pp. Ex parliamentary library with their gilt crest on the front board and incorporated into the spine, old manuscript shelf ticket, no other markings; some spotting of outer few pages but quite a good copy. ¶ English edition using the Boston sheets with a new title inserted. One of the first handful of American prison reformers, Gray focussed on the instances of insanity, particularly caused by solitary confinement, based largely on two of the most progressive of American prisons - Philadelphia and Charlestown. He also canvassed European and English opinion, experience and reform. Gray was an example of the ideal Boston gentleman; lawyer by profession, humanitarian by leaning, he was also a pioneer photographer, art collector and member of just about every cultured and learned association there was.
