V.333. Abial Holmes Maltby, b. April 12, 1792 (Jonathan 4, Benj.3, Dan.2, Wm.1). Mar. Feb. 18, 1819, Sarah Booth Lyon, dau. of Nathaniel Lyon of New Haven. Abial H. Maltby d. in New Haven, 1853, and was buried from the North Church on the Old Green. He was one of the deacons of that church and a sermon was preached appropriate to the occasion.
He was a Bookseller and Publisher in the Globe building on the corner of Church and Chapel streets for many years. The compiler has an old file, 1839, I think, of the "New Haven Palladium," in which his advertisements frequently appear for rate and new books just received from England. Mrs. Jane Bushnell Shepherd, in her (1932) little but interesting book "My Old New Haven," quotes the following advertisement in "New Haven Daily Palladium," Dec. 29,1843:
"New Haven Bookstore. A. H. Maltby--for sale.
"The American in Paris, An annual, 1843, with 18 highly finished engravings.
The London, The Book of Beauty, 1843.
The Keepsake, 1843. London, and
Heath's Shakespeare Gallery containing the principal female characters of this great post."
He had no descendants.
The compiler found in a New Haven antique shop owned by Mr. Sattig, a very beautiful ivory miniature of Abial Holmes Maltby, exquisitely painted. Mr. Sattig considered it to be the gem of his miniature collection. As I recall it, the hair was chestnut brown, slightly wavy, complexion fair and delicately tinted, charmingly fresh, the eyes, I think, were blue and he wore a dark blue coat with high, soft white stock, and brass buttons on the coat. Mr. Sattig got the ministure from Ellsworth Maltby of Fair Haven, about 1905/6, "for the price of the gold frame, the miniature was thrown in." Unfortunately I was not in a position to make an offer for it, but years later I got in touch with Mr. Sattig, asking if he would be willing to have it photographed. By this time he could not recall whether he sold it or gave it away.
