Crumbs of bread; or, the life of Hannah Chappell (late of Stapleton, Bristol), who was no Ritualist, but an old-fashioned Protestant

London: printed by W. H. & L. Collingridge, 1877. Sole edition, small 8vo, pp. 63, [1]; original terracotta cloth stamped in black, gilt, and blind; title page a little spotted and with the top edge clipped; all else very good. This life of Hannah Chappell (1796-1876), born in 18th-century Gloucestershire has not been found in OCLC, COPAC, nor NUC, although it was known to the bibliographers F. A. Hyett and Roland Austin, Supplement to the Bibliographer’s Manual of Gloucestershire Literature (1915), p. 99. Of interest not only to historians of Gloucestershire but also to those of women in the early 19th century. Item #48999
