    New York, Cincinnati & Boston: John Bradburn / Rickey & Carroll / A. Williams & Co., 1864. Hardcover first edition - A contemporary review in the New Englander and Yale review, July 1864, described this book thus: "This very fruitful theme is treated by the author with great boldness of speech and with no little force of conception. The Principle of Secession, Slavery, The Democratic Party, The Romish Church, and other topics, are all discussed in the most energetic fashion. If it were possible for any deliverances to be too strongly expressed perhaps exception might be taken to some in this volume, especially to the free use of personalities. But the sincerity of the author, and the truthfulness of the most of his representations, are fitted to reconcile the loyal reader to what would otherwise be deemed offenses against good taste The author writes in a religious spirit, and with the earnestness and energy of strong convictions." In addition to the topics singled out by this reviewer, there are chapters on the South in 1776 and in the framing of the constitution, on the role of the slave master, etc., all written from a strong abolitionist viewpoint. Appendix. 328 pp.

    Condition: Very good condition overall in olive green embossed cloth with gilt lettering on the spine (some fraying to the ends of the spine, and wear to the corners of the boards.) Uncommon.
