About this Item

38 pp. including 2 pp. putative reviews. 12mo. The author is alleged to have been born in Scotland in 1828 and, having exhausted all intellectual and spiritual opportunities of that land before age 13, in 1840 he moved to America to expand his capacities. He wandered from New York to Connecticut and ultimately to New Hampshire, functioning as an author, poet, orator and metaphysician, an ornament to the intellectuals of Hanover. Here is a collection of his poems, including “To the Washington Monument”, “Zachary Taylor Is No More” and “To Miss Harriet Martineau. On Her Birthday”. Most notable are his “The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850. The American Congress Unmasked” and, in Latin, “Lex Fugitiva” perhaps foretelling the Civil War. This, alleged Second Edition, is edited by Jonathan Candebeus, Jr. The notes are extensive, in English, Latin and Greek, with many references to Classical works, scholars and rhetoric. A grand send-up, magnificently irrelevant and nicely illustrated by small wood engravings. Reviews quoted at rear are allegedly from The New York Tribune, the Edinburgh Review, Daniel Webster, Henry Clay and H. Lytton Bulwer, among others. Harvard has a copy allegedly published by the Dartmouth Press of Hanover; this edition is represented at AAS and Brown (Hay, Harris 76 C9555). Rare and in great condition. Mild soiling of rear cover. Else, Very Good. Illustrated, buff printed papaer wraps. Bookseller Inventory # 10521
