1 edition published in 1858 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Subject: View of Beacon Hill, including the Beacon Hill Memorial Column designed in 1789 by Charles Bulfinch to memorialize the site of the original beacon. Beacon Hill was cut away in 1811 - the same year the original drawing was executed - and the column destroyed; it was later replicated in its original location behind the statehouse, however, where it still stands. The dirt face of the partially destroyed hill occupies the majority of the middle ground. Five trees separate a house at right from the street, which is covered with horse-drawn carts of dirt and rocks. Workmen use picks to chip away at the dirt face of the partially excavated hill while two gentlemen appear to be engaged in a discussion in the foreground. Another residence is perched on the far side of the hill, smoke rising from its chimney

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sufferings in Africa: Captain Riley's narrative; an authentic narrative of the loss of the American brig Commerce, wrecked on the western coast of Africa, in the month of August, 1815. With an account of the sufferings of her surviving officers and crew, who were enslaved by the wandering Arabs on the great African desart [sic] or Zahahrah, and observations historical, geographical, &c. made during the travels of the author while a slave to the Arabs, and in the Empire of Morocco by James Riley( Book )
1 edition published in 1817 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Listed by Abraham Lincoln, alongside the Bible and Pilgrim's Progress, as one of the books that most influenced his life, few true tales of adventure and survival are as astonishing as this one. Shipwrecked off the western coast of North Africa in August of 1815, James Riley and his crew had no idea of the trials awaiting them as they gathered their beached belongings. They would be captured by a band of nomadic Arabs, herded across the Sahara Desert, beaten, forced to witness astounding brutalities, sold into slavery, and starved. Riley watched most of his crew die one by one, killed off by cruelty or caprice, as his own weight dropped from 240 pounds to a mere 90 at his rescue. First published in 1817, this dramatic saga soon became a national bestseller with over a million copies sold. Even today, it is rare to find a narrative that illuminates the degradations of slave existence with such brutal honesty
