1 Ripley, George. A Farewell Discourse, Delivered to the Congregational Church in Purchase Street, March 28, 1841.

Boston: No publisher, 1841. First edition. Lacks the printed wrappers, 24 pp. Ripley, the reformer, reluctantly leaves his parish in the poorer part of Boston to start the Brook Farm utopian community in West Roxbury, where he hopes to lead society, by example, to the right way of living. Removed from a bound volume, cut down to 4 3/4 by 7 3/8 inches. Very Good.

2 Ripley, George. Andrews Norton's Obituary

in the New York Tribune for September 24, 1853. Complete issue, 8 pp. The obit of Norton (p.4) is about 22 column inches, unsigned, but Ripley worked at the Tribune at this time, and years later he used some of the same phrases to write about Norton in The Memorial History of Boston, 1881 (v.4, p.299-301 general editor Justin Winsor. Ripley died before this essay was completed). Given the pamphlet war between Norton and Ripley resulting from Norton's The Latest Form of Infidelity (1839), this is a generous estimate of Norton's legacy - recognition for his "...eminent position (and) influence on the formation of opinion and progress of culture...", followed by a compliment he might not have appreciated: "He was the Theodore Parker of his day." But, there was sharp criticism - his "...opposition to the results of German theology often led him to acts of the grossest injustice" and "Professedly the champion of free thought, he was the last to encourage it in others, whenever it took a direction in opposition to himself." In Ripley's 1881 estimate (The Memorial History…), this kind of criticism was left out. Minor edgewear and a small dampstain to one corner. A Very Good copy.
