About This Item

8vo. Boston: Fowle and Capen, 1842. 8vo, iv, 390pp. Old half calf, marbled boards, binding sound, text quite foxed especially at the front and back. § Volume 4 of this series; this copy inscribed by Horace Mann: : “C. Sumner from Horace Mann 1847”. Later signature of Mary C. Chapman. Horace Mann inscriptions are uncommon and this is a superb association. “Charles Sumner (January 6, 1811 – March 11, 1874) was an American politician and senator from Massachusetts. As an academic lawyer and a powerful orator, Sumner was the leader of the antislavery forces in Massachusetts and a leader of the Radical Republicans in the United States Senate during the American Civil War working to destroy the Confederacy, free all the slaves, and keep on good terms with Europe. During Reconstruction, he fought to minimize the power of the ex-Confederates and guarantee equal rights to the freedmen.” Mary Chapman was involved with the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society and was a friend of poet Julia Ward Howe and close friend of Charles Sumner and Horace Mann.
