Helper, Hinton Rowan. Compendium Of The Impending Crisis Of The South pamphlet
An Unusual And Impassioned View Of Slavery
From The View Of A Southern Abolitionist
Helper, Hinton Rowan. COMPENDIUM OF THE IMPENDING CRISIS OF THE SOUTH. New York: 1860. Later edition, 214p. (Howes H-400 variant).
Helper provides an unusual and impassioned view of slavery from the view of a Southern abolitionist. Republicans abridged and reprinted the original 1857 edition for this 1860 election version, which helped the pamphlet gain more national influence than it might otherwise have had. A classic even in its time.
A good relic of the 1860 presidential campaign.
Rear wrapper missing; chipped at spine and front wrapper; light pencil marks within; else very good.
