About This Item

New York: Loyal Publication Society of New York, 1864. Hardcover. Very Good. First collected edition. Octavo. Contains 55 tracts bound in one volume. Lacks three tracts, else complete with additional tracts (nos. 45-50, 52, 54, 56-58, and 60-62) dating from March-September 1864 also bound in. A beautiful copy professionally bound in modern period-style half calf and marbled boards that match the original marbled edges. Small library stamp to the top edge of the title page, else no other markings, with moderate toning to the title and contents pages, very good. The Loyal Publication Society of New York was led by Charles King, president of Columbia University, and the German-American jurist Francis Lieber. A second, sister Society was established in Boston. Both were founded in 1863 after the Union Army had suffered many defeats, in order to bolster public support for the Union effort. They achieved this by disseminating pro-Union tracts and related articles to newspapers around the country, and directly to Union soldiers. The tracts address the economic, social, and political issues of the day, with special attention to slavery and its abolition. Scarce. *OCLC* locates only five copies, and none with the additional tracts bound in this volume. A detailed list is available upon request.
