TOCQUEVILLE, Alexis de, and Gustave de BEAUMONT.
Du système pénitentiaire aux États-Unis, et de son application en France, suivi d’un appendice sur les colonies pénales et de notes statistiques.
First edition of de Tocqueville’s forerunner to Democracy in America. A detailed report on the innovative penitentiary system in the young United States, Du système pénitentiaire was published by Tocqueville and Beaumont after their observational tour of North America at the behest of the July Monarchy. Though intended only for the inspection of prisons, the nine-month trip (1831–1832) was used by Tocqueville to gather information for his study on American society, published two years after this official report.
