EPITAPH ON THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. HERE LIE THE MUTILATED AND DISJOINTED REMAINS OF THE NOBLEST FORM OF GOVERNMENT EVER CONTRIVED BY THE WISDOM OF MAN.
Printed broadside, 12 X 19 inches. Black mourning border, numerous typefaces, three columns of type, each comprised of brief commentary on subjects such as the history and heroes of the republic, slavery, scathing criticism of various Northern institutions, etc. This is an interesting mélange of sentiment, with sorrow, anger, bewilderment, shock and regret expressing the overall sentiment of quasi-hysteria that immediately followed from South Carolina’s secession. Printed at head of title: ‘Printed for distribution amongst their friends by Evans & Cogswell, No. 3 Broad and 103 East Bay Sts., Charleston, S.C.’ Bit of paper loss top left, affecting no type and not detracting from the aesthetics of the piece. Minor scattered light foxing. Very nice. Not in CRANDALL. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 5372 locates six copies.Hughes Books issues 4-5 printed catalogs per year.
