Buchbeschreibung Columbia:, 1852. 45pp, untrimmed and uncut [with a few short margin tears]. Stitched, original printed front wrapper (front wrap nearly detached, rear plain wrap missing). Text clean and Very Good. As in 1832 and 1860, South Carolina jumped the gun on her southern sisters by her call for appointment of deputies to this Convention to consider secession. This pamphlet reports on the Convention and its proposed secession ordinance, and provides a list of members. Printed also is the dissenting opinion of B.F. Perry, the prominent Unionist. Howes says that this item "declares that this state has the right- and sufficient cause- to secede from the Federal Union and that she forbears from exercising such right only from considerations of expediency. Marks the evolution of States Rights opinion, from mild nullification to the final break." FIRST EDITION. Howes S781aa. III Turnbull 146. Cohen 6321. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 18209
