Descripción

Original printed wrappers [margin-chipped], stitched. 27, [1 blank] pp. Else Very Good. A presentation copy from Wilson, signed on the front wrapper. "A careful constitutional analysis in advocacy of the proposition that the property of 'Southern Rebels' might be confiscated and applied toward payment of the debt incurred by the War." Eberstadt. In the absence of any significant constitutional history of the prohibition on bills of attainder-- legislative rather than judicial determinations of guilt, tainting the rights of the 'traitor's' heirs-- Wilson resorts to English practice and considers the way in which the language of the prohibition was understood by the Founders. He and Foot laud the care with which the Founders protected individual rights, and conclude that the Confiscation Act is constitutional. 109 Eberstadt 31. Bartlett 5884.
