Blindstamped, brown cloth with gilt illustration on front and faded gilt titles on spine. The book has edge, corner and surface wear with corner rubbed to boards and evidence (fading) of an old dampstain on the bottom corners, front and rear. Please see scan. There is no evidence of this dampstain in the interior. Overall the book is square and securely bound, a solid, presentable copy about VG. This work was an attack on slavery, especially those in the North who allowed Southern ideas on slavery to stand. "Doughface" was a term coined to describe these politicians, whose politics were pliable like dough. This work is attributed to "A Former Resident of the South." It was written by Darius Lyman who was instrumental in publishing it. Important pre-Civil War work, now somewhat overlooked.
