Philadelphia & Cincinnati: George W. Childs & Applegate & Co., 1862. "Parson" Brownlow (1805-1877) presents an interesting type. He was anti-Catholic, pro-slavery, a member of the Know Nothings, who reversed himself to become one of the most radical of the Radical Republicans after the Civil War. Always known for his combative and vituperative nature, as Governor of Tennessee he became a formidable foe of the Ku Klux Klan. This is a Very Good (Minus) copy of the First Edition. Green cloth binding, stamped, with gilt lettering on the spine. Clean text; 458 pages, with eight pages of publisher's adverts in the rear. The last page advert is for Brownlow's newspaper, the "Knoxville Whig." Bumped and with a bit of a fray, mildly cocked. Quercus awards this copy a Minus grade due to some flood marking affecting the frontis and papers up to the Preface. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. First Edition.
