345 pp. + 6 pp. advt 12 x 18 cm. "Dark brown cloth on board with blindstamped design and gilt title on spine. Corners bumped, inscription on front free endpaper " Exeter, NH 1858". Very good." "Godwin (1816-1904) dedicates this collection of fiery essays to Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts: "Before you were prostrated by the hand of violence, you stood first in the admiration of your young countrymen " On May 22, 1856 Sumner, an ardent and outspoken champion of abolition of slavery, had been attacked on the floor of the Senate by Rep. Preston Brooks of South Carolina. This book includes an essay, "Our Parties and Politics" in which Godwin notes that we have "whigs, democratic whigs, democrats, true democrats, barnburners, hingers, silvery grays, woolly heads, soft shells, hard shells, national reformers, fire-eaters and fillibusteros." Also, "The Vestiges of Despotism", "Our Foreign Influence and Policy", "Annexation", "America for the Americans", "Should We Fear the Pope?", "Northern or Southern, Which?" and "Kansas Must Be Free". In "Annexation" Godwin notes that "Brother Jonathan . has cheated the poor Indians out of 20 or 30 states; has flogged Mexico into the relinquishment of half a dozen more, is bullying Spain for the surrender of Cuba, has hoodwinked Kamehameha. and is deliberately surveying Japan with a view to some future landing!" This collection gives an excellent slice of one side of the dialogue during pre-Civil War America.". Buchnummer des Verkäufers 1837
