Recent Speeches and Addresses by Charles Sumner


This antique hardcover book is bound in brown cloth boards with gilt spine lettering and decorations on the front cover. Some wear, soil to covers; small label remnant on spine; bookplate, inscription on front endpapers; some foxing within, most inner pages clean. A few loose signatures, but binding is holding. Small tear on front free endpaper. Contains notable addresses given by Charles Sumner on slavery and other topics. The book was likely published before Sumner's injury in the Senate at the hands of Preston Brooks, as it makes no mention of the attack. 562 pages; approx. 5"x7".
