About this Item

This 240 page fact-is-stranger-than-fiction tale, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original binding and original dustwrapper. The binding is rock solid, tight, and clean save for very mild edgewear. The unclipped jacket is quite nice, save for moderate edgewear chipping and toning to foredge fold and spine. Inside you'll be entranced by the historical account of the Amistad revolt and the judicial trials and tribulations that resulted from it. In 1839, an illegal slave ship was seized by slaves in an attempt to sail back to Africa, then captured in US waters. Wow! The author Chris Martin looks alternately dispassionately and passionately at all sides of this controversially chosen subject matter, and we at Hirschfield Galleries hope that only those who similarly read and contemplate with an objective mind would yearn to become the next caretaker of this seminalogic work. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. ACTUAL BOOK FOR SALE PICTURED.
