THE KENNEDY YEARS AND THE NEGRO. A photographic record.  THE DAY THE MARCHED. With an intro. by Andrew T. Hatcher.
143pp. Wrps. A very good copy.
New York; D. Appleton and Company, 1874.  Hardcover.  279pp +8pp adverts. Ex-library. Very Good condition.  Blue cloth boards unbumped and with slight fabric wear at extremities; spine a bit darkened but gilt titling remains bright; library number inked on spine; slight fabric split in lower front gutter. 1874 library sticker on front pastedown, small library stamp on title page and a few later pages, and a couple library pencil markings.  Otherwise the interior is very clean, unmarked, square and tightly bound.  From the preface..."Fifteen years ago, when emancipation seemed distant, I ventured the prediction that the Gulf States would finally have to be surrendered to the blacks; but the abolition of slavery having been suddenly precipitated, the conditions of the problem have become changed. Yet there are those who believe such is now the inevitable fate of several of the Southern States, South Carolina included.  In the following pages I have combated this sentiment as regards South Carolina, and have pointed out the method by which it seems to me its Africanization can be prevented, and suggested some of the considerations which should inspire an effort to prevent such a result."  (cfm)
