New York & Auburn: Miller, Orton & Mulligan, 1856. Anna Ella Carroll (1815-1894) has an historical reputation that has waxed and waned. A wealthy slave-owner, she became anti-slavery and an advisor to Abraham Lincoln. Sometimes seen as a feminist hero, she was a member of the Native American Party (the "Know Nothings") that was simultaneously pro-Union, pro-Labor and virulently anti-Catholic and anti-Immigrant. Her state was the only one carried by Millard Fillmore in the election of 1856. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition. Brown decorative cloth binding; stamped on the front with a gilt design featuring Liberty carrying a flag as she leads an America; they stand on the Constitution; a motto overhead asks, "Should Americans Rule America." Clean text; xii, with pagination beginning at 14 and carrying through to 365. Portraits of Fillmore, Donelson, and the Author. Bumped, and faded around the margins; nonetheless, a sound copy of an historically interesting work.. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.
