Washington, Miss., 1839. Broadside, 15 ½ by 13 inches, four columns of type. First edition. Vertical fold. Fine copy on quality rag paper. A detailed prospectus of Jefferson College, Mississippi, providing a picture of the offerings and workings of an early 19th century Southern college. Describes courses, instructors, tuition and boarding plans. Even at this relatively early date, there is states-rights rhetoric that presages the Civil War: ‘To the young of whatever nation, home education and home discipline are of lasting moment…At this very moment, a formidable contest has commenced between the North and the South, from the possible results of which the eye of the patriot instinctively revolts. The issue can only be known to the Great Disposer of all things: but it surely becomes us to preserve our children from any influence that might mislead their judgment or weaken their patriotism. To do this effectually WE MUST KEEP THEM AT HOME.’. Bookseller Inventory # 0048
