About this Item

8vo, pp 90. Removed from a nonce volume, sewn (several leaves starting to come apart), lacks the orginal wraps, generally a very good tight copy of a scarce work. The first lecture is: "Geographical, political, and Historical Sketch of the American United States, " the second one is: "Origin and History of the Federal Party; With a General View of the Hamilton Financial Scheme," and the third is: "On The Sectional Question-Southern Slavery." The three speeches are here first printed with a 25 page introduction after being first deleived the same year in Philadelphia and Cincinnati. The first volume was originally issued in 1829. Sabin 18639. Accompanied by her sister, Wright first settled in New York City, while she attempted to establish herself as a dramatist. Frustrated by her lack of literary success, she returned to London in 1820. Upon her return to America in 1824, she became a leading figure in the agitation for woman suffrage and the abolition of slavery. Of note was her attempt to establish an experimental colony for the gradual emancipation of slaves on land purchased near Memphis, Tenn. She lived at Owen's New Harmony for some years before establishing the "Hall of Science" in New York to serve as a platform for this lecture series. -Lecture subjects include religion, knowledge, free enquiry, etc. These are the lectures of an important English thinker who came to the freedom of new world America and made an impact on our politics and social development.
