for which there is little basis in fact; and some are blissfully unaware of the final disposition of the case, whereby Rosenzweig was set free. Facsimiles of some of the Times’s articles reporting the case are available online, but I have relied instead on my notes from the press of the period, primarily but not exclusively the Times, taken while doing background research for my biography of Restell: The Wickedest Woman in New York: Madame Restell, the Abortionist (Archon Books, 1988). Aha! some of you are now exclaiming: clever Browder, he’s drumming up sales for his book, hoping to sluice money from our impoverished pockets into his own. Ah, if only that were the case! But alas, no, the book is long out of print and available only in reference libraries or second hand online at an outrageous price, not a penny of which comes to me. A good free compendium of the book that includes direct quotes is available at victoriangothic.org.
