About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for BILBO, BREWER, AND BRIBERY IN MISSISSIPPI POLITICS BY EX-SENATOR G.A. HOBBS. by Hobbs, G.A. (Gambrell Austin Hobbs), 1877-1950. [Theodore G. Bilbo, 1877-1947; Earl L. Brewer, 1869-1942.].

Description:

Early printing. 408 pages plus covers. Paperback: H 18.75cm x L 13.25cm. Original brownish-orange paper covers soiled and stained with slight wear at corners. Toning and pronounced foxing spots to edges; light foxing to several initial and rear leaves; three sections of interior leaves have some toning (probably due to printer utilizing a slightly different paper stock) but majority of interior pages otherwise remain quite clean. Publisher's original glued quire binding remains firm. Conservatively graded as good+ condition but still notably better than most copies encountered of this exceptionally uncommon Mississippi political history diatribe. The University of Mississippi Libraries Catalog cites this 408 page 1917 edition as preceding a (presumably abridged) 234 page 1918 edition. Although no publisher or printer imprint is provided other than a copyright date of 1917 upon the title page, the Ole Miss catalog (as well OCLC) specify this edition as printed in Memphis, Tennessee by Dixon-Paul Printing Company. This 1917 edition was issued in both cloth and paper bindings and, as I am unsure which has priority (I would favor the former), I merely attribute this as being an early printing. Democrat Earl Brewer (1869-1942) served as Governor of Mississippi from 1912 to 1916 and, by the political whims of the era, ran unopposed in the state's primary election and thus won the governorship without making a single public campaign speech as the general election offered negligible opposition in Socialist Party candidate S.W. Rose. Lieutenant Governor Theodore Bilbo (serving under Governor Earl Brewer 1912-1916) and State Senator George Hobbs were indicted and tried for bribery concerning a bill to create a new county in the state's Delta region in 1914. BILBO, BREWER, AND BRIBERY promulgates Hobbs' opinion, explanation, and argument regarding the political and legal proceedings and directs much wrath at Governor Brewer who testified for the prosecution. The vile Bilbo would, or course, later serve as governor from 1916-1920 and again from 1928-1932 and well as U.S. Senator 1935-1947. Bookseller Inventory #
