Youth’s Monitor

view Youth’s Monitor digital asset number 1
Measurements:
overall: 1/2 in x 4 3/8 in x 2 5/8 in; 1.27 cm x 11.1125 cm x 6.6675 cm
Object Name:
book
Description:
This edition of Youth's monitor, or, Histories of the lives of young persons was written by an unknown author with the initials J.R. and published by George W. Mentz in 1815. The 127 page book related 14 histories of young people who looked to the Bible for their guiding principles, while keeping their final destination in mind at all times. Though the author claimed that the stories reflected true histories, they cleaved so closely to the general structure of scriptural morality lessons that it is doubtful they occurred as stated.
The Copp Collection contains about 150 books of early American imprint and shows a wide range of reading matter typical of a New England Puritan family living in a port town. Literacy was expected of many New Englanders, as Puritan doctrine required everyone to read the Bible. The abundance of multiple Bibles, psalms, hymnodies, sermons, and morality tales reflects the Copp’s religious beliefs. Other highlights of the library include the works of Shakespeare, almanacs, historical and political texts, and travel narratives.
The Copp Collection contains a variety of household objects that the Copp family of Connecticut used from around 1700 until the mid-1800s. Part of the Puritan Great Migration from England to Boston, the family eventually made their home in New London County, Connecticut, where their textiles, clothes, utensils, ceramics, books, bibles, and letters provide a vivid picture of daily life. More of the collection from the Division of Home and Community Life can be viewed by searching accession number 28810.

Notes:
[1] This object was at one time believed to have been purchased by Charles Lang Freer from Colonel H.B. Hanna. However, further research has revealed that it was acquired from Siegfried Bing. The purchase of this image is recorded in Charles Lang Freer's Notes on his European Trip Purchases of 1907 with the description "Bought from M. Bing - 1 Persian Painting - A man sitting on a bench reading a book - He wears a sword - upright 6 x 4)." A voucher for the purchase of this painting from M. Bing is in the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives (see Curatorial Remark 11, Debra Diamond, February 3, 2011, in the object record).
[2] See note 1.
[3] The original deed of Charles Lang Freer's gift was signed in 1906. The collection was received in 1920 upon the completion of the Freer Gallery.
