The flash press : sporting male weeklies in 1840s New York by Patricia Cline Cohen( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Obscene, libidinous, loathsome, lascivious. Those were just some of the ways critics described the nineteenth-century weeklies that covered and publicized New York City's extensive sexual underworld. Publications like the Flash and the Whip--distinguished by a captivating brew of lowbrow humor and titillating gossip about prostitutes, theater denizens, and sporting events--were not the sort generally bound in leather for future reference, and despite their popularity with an enthusiastic readership, they quickly receded into almost complete obscurity. Recently, though, two sizable collections of these papers have resurfaced, and in The Flash Press three renowned scholars provide a landmark study of their significance as well as a wide selection of their ribald articles and illustrations. Including short tales of urban life, editorials on prostitution, and moralizing rants against homosexuality, these selections epitomize a distinct form of urban journalism. Here, in addition to providing a thorough overview of this colorful reportage, its editors, and its audience, the authors examine nineteenth-century ideas of sexuality and freedom that mixed Tom Paine's republicanism with elements of the Marquis de Sade's sexual ideology. They also trace the evolution of censorship and obscenity law, showing how a string of legal battles ultimately led to the demise of the flash papers: editors were hauled into court, sentenced to jail for criminal obscenity and libel, and eventually pushed out of business. But not before they forever changed the debate over public sexuality and freedom of expression in America's most important city"--Publisher's description
The cultivation of artists in nineteenth-century America( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These papers - with one exception - were prepared for The Cultivation of Artists in Nineteenth-Century America, a conference held at the American Antiquarian Society, April 30-May 2, 1993, to celebrate Diana Korzenik's gift of the Cross Family Art Archive to AAS. Subsequently this gift of works by three siblings from Manchester, New Hampshire, that includes their childhood drawings and instructional works, the proofs of their wood engravings, and oils and watercolors done as adults, was augmented with other materials relating to the history of the family and its artists. Taken together, the conference papers trace the transformation of art in America for its consumers and the evolution of working in art
