Title: Documents in the matter of an application to the honorable the Legislature of the state of New-York, for a charter for Manhattan College.

Author: David Hosack

Publisher: Gale, Sabin Americana


Based on Joseph Sabin's famed bibliography, Bibliotheca Americana, Sabin Americana, 1500--1926 contains a collection of books, pamphlets, serials and other works about the Americas, from the time of their discovery to the early 1900s. Sabin Americana is rich in original accounts of discovery and exploration, pioneering and westward expansion, the U.S. Civil War and other military actions, Native Americans, slavery and abolition, religious history and more.

Sabin Americana offers an up-close perspective on life in the western hemisphere, encompassing the arrival of the Europeans on the shores of North America in the late 15th century to the first decades of the 20th century. Covering a span of over 400 years in North, Central and South America as well as the Caribbean, this collection highlights the society, politics, religious beliefs, culture, contemporary opinions and momentous events of the time. It provides access to documents from an assortment of genres, sermons, political tracts, newspapers, books, pamphlets, maps, legislation, literature and more.

Now for the first time, these high-quality digital scans of original works are available via print-on-demand, making them readily accessible to libraries, students, independent scholars, and readers of all ages.

Notes: Petitions and memorials signed by David Hosack, William James Macneven, Valentine Mott, John W. Francis, John Griscom, and others. The five principal signers, professors at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, seceded from that institution in 1826 to found a rival medical school, Rutgers Medical College, which soon became the Rutgers Medical Faculty of Geneva College. When this school failed to win legislative approval, they attempted unsuccessfully to establish another, to be called Manhattan College. Cf. Norwood, W.F. Medical education in the United States before the Civil War (1944), chapter 11. The proposed medical school had no connection with the Roman Catholic institution founded in 1853 and called Manhattan College in 1863.
