About this Item

Pamphlet, lacking any wraps that may have been issued. Appears disbound from a larger volume.16 pp. Bears the signature of Isaiah Thomas, although there is no direct provenance to establish that this is the signature of the noted American printer. There are some similarities to current online examples of his signature, with differences noted too, as well as differences noted in the way Thomas wrote his signature. This is a speech addressing the threat to the United States sovereignty at the hands of Great Britain, alluding to threats to seamen, etc., as well as the War of 1812 (although not mentioned directly). Bangs also addresses the threat to the United States through the dissolution of the Union into smaller groups of states, referring to the errors of Northern Federalism and threats to New England in the strength of larger states of the South and West. Edward Bangs was a lawyer and politician (a Jeffersonian Republican) from Worcester, Massachusetts, as well as an early member of the American Antiquarian Society (see American Antiquarian Society website). GOOD condition. General uneven browning to the paper, with minor foxing and staining to the front/title page, as well as a few minor notations at the top. Minor scattered foxing in the interior, with a few small stains. Sabin 3164. Bookseller Inventory # 006474
