THE ADDRESS OF THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, ASSEMBLED IN CONVENTION, TO THE PEOPLE OF THE SLAVEHOLDING STATES OF THE UNITED STATES
Charleston: Evans & Cogswell, 1860. 16pp. Original printed yellow wrappers. Light wear to spine, minor wear and soiling. Internally clean. Very good. "Following the Ordinance of Secession itself, which the Carolinians regarded as a latter-day Declaration of Independence, the Address is the most important and most interesting of the several documents of the Secession Convention. It was drawn up by Robert Barnwell Rhett, fire-eating publisher of the MERCURY. The Address cleverly compares the relation of the Southern States to the North to the relation of the American colonies to England, states that all confidence in the North has been lost, asserts the right of secession, and presents a defence of slavery. It is both a justification of the actions of the Convention and an invitation to the other Southern states to join in a new nation" - Harwell. Institutionally common, but scarce in trade. HARWELL, CORNERSTONES OF CONFEDERATE COLLECTING 1. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 3749.
