Hard Cover. Good to Very Good/Not Issued in Dustjacket. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 295 pages. The true history of the extradition of Anthony Burns as a fugitive slave, the court house attack & martial law in Boston. Bound in the original publisher's black cloth-covered boards.The book is very clean and stain-free, no moisture, very firm and tight in its binding, with no pages loose, missing or torn. Hinges sound, corners slightly worn but unbumped. The boards with blind stamped decorations and corner devices framing both the front and rear panels. The cloth is worn through at the bottom corner points, and there is shelf-wear along the bottom edges of the boards. At the spine, the head-cap and toe-cap are worn off, and there is some chipping at both the spine top an d bottom. There is also wear along the edges of the spine, but the cloth over the exterior hinges is intact. The hinges, front and back, inside and outside are sound. The pages are moderately toned from age, and there is a moderate amount of foxing present. Both the toning and foxing are largely confined to the edges of the pages, and all text is clear and very legible. The exterior top edge and fore-edge of the pages are darkened from accumulated shelf dust. The book is very straight, no leans, rolls or cocking. The lettering on the spine, once stamped gold, is still visible and readable but the gilt has vanished. This is an important book from a historical viewpoint. Stevens was an eyewitness to many of the events described in the book. The extradition of fugitive slaves was a rallying point for abolitionists, and violent incidents such as occured in Boston, as described in this book, marked the slide of the nation toward civil war. The historical perspective offered in these pages is compelling, especially considering the role Boston had in the nation's fight for independence. Illustrated by With 3 full page engravings. Very acceptable copy of significant first edition. N° de ref. de la librería 002408
