Thomas Goodwin, The Natural History of Secession, 1st ed.
Take-Down of Secession for the 1864 Campaign
Thomas Goodwin’s The Natural History of Secession is a political polemic produced during the 1864 election.
Goodwin compares respect for democracy between the North and South. Not surprisingly, the South is found wanting. A minister, Goodwin also traces the depreciation, as he sees it, of Christianity in the South as slavery became more profitable and entrenched in the economy.
Lightly foxed, with bright boards, tight hinges and minimal wear to the extremities. Very good.
