About this Item

1855, 12mo, viii, [9]-223pp. Extremities lightly worn, head and tail of spine lightly chipped, gilt lettering and designs still bright, occasional light foxing, else G. The previous owner of the book, Samuel W. Swoope has signed his name and written the date, June 13, 1855, in two places. He was very likely the only son (1832-1857) of the Rev. Edgar and Elmira Swoope, of Courtland, Alabama, and is buried there in the Swoope Cemetery. The author is listed simply as "An American" but Sabin, 87110, attributes the work to Anspach. The 1954 edition of Howes also lists Anspach as the author. (A-287). It is not listed in the later Howes. The American Party, commonly known as the Know-Nothing Party, consisting of old Whigs in search of a party after the deaths of Henry Clay and Daniel Webster, dissatisfied Democrats, and other political malcontents, and groups opposed in general to European emigrants, particularly Catholics, began to take shape about 1850 in New York City. The party gained strength nationwide over the next few years. In Massachusetts the party controlled the governorship, the Senate and the House, and eight other states had Know-Nothing party governors. In the United States Congress, eight Senators and 104 of the 234 members of the House of Representatives were party members. Bookseller Inventory # 12495
