Toned, beige newsprint wraps with black titles. Some edge and corner wear with a small chip on back (less than dime-sized) with small amount of advertisement text affected. (Chip is laid in.) Old stain on front that shows up on interior pages but is difficult to differentiate from the general toning of pages. This copy has been professionally tipped together and is in very nice condition despite the problems noted. Sumner's speech on the admission of Kansas was widely printed and reprinted and constitutes a fierce attack on slavery. I have not been able to determine the exact printing history, but this seems to be the first printing by Hyatt, and it dates from the the year of the speech. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 32 pages
