Hinton Rowan Helper, Compendium Of The Impending Crisis Of The South pamphlet
An Impassioned View of Slavery,
from the View Of A Southern Abolitionist
Helper’s pamphlet, Compendium of the Impending Crisis of the South 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.
