The book from our latest Staxpeditions pretty much stumped our panel!  And the catalog record did not add much. The book is titled:

Papel en derecho. Respuesta al manifiesto, que entregaron à los señores del Consejo los diputados de los individuos, llamados de la Calle, que habitan en la isla de Mallorca, en satisfaccion de lo que respectivamente se opuso por la ciudad, Cabildo eclesiastico, y Universidad de la ciudad de Palma, capital de aquella isla. A fin de que no se conceda a los descendientes de judíos la igualdad que solicitan con los hombres buenos del estado general del reyno de Mallorca.  [Madrid, 1778]

HOWEVER!  In the comments for the video, we found out that our follower who requested the book could read a lot of it just from the shots in the video, and he connected the book to another researcher that would be interested in this book!

Heart=Warmed.  That’s why we do this!  

I hope you have been having some fun watching our Staxpeditions.  If you want to send us on a mission, please leave a call number or call number range in the comments on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, or here on Tumblr and we would be happy to go exploring for you!

The University of Iowa’s Staxpeditions inspired me to feature some of the books in our special collections, and this spine caught my eye: The American Woman’s Home (1869) by Harriet Beecher Stowe and Catharine E. Beecher.

The two sisters dedicated their book “to THE WOMEN OF AMERICA, in whose hands rest the real destinies of the republic, as moulded by the early training and preserved amid the maturer influences of home, this volume is affectionately inscribed.”

According to the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, “Stowe became the Martha Stewart of the Victorian era by counseling the American middle class in the home arts of cooking, health, organization, and more.”

tl;dr - Harriet Beecher Stowe = 19th century Martha Stewart

I know this one well!  I have pulled this one out myself, in the same way, in our Szathmary Culinary Collection.  It is a very eye catching spine!  See our copy in the catalog.
