Government Printing Office, Washington DC. 1867, 147p., disbound softback in 9x6 inch self-wraps, well-adhered and showing only a little dust-soil and toning to exposed front and back pages. Small numerals pencilled on one corner of cover wrap, a very good copy. Text consists entirely of state-by-state tables printed in a small font, giving name of pardonee, exemption, by whom recommended, date of pardon. 40th Congress, 2d session. Ex. Doc. no. 16.. The exemption list features short-title job descriptions ("Rebel tax collector." "Clerk in rebel tax department") and, more often than not, financial status, as "R. W. Brickell [of Alabama] Violated his oath. Proceedings commenced for confiscation, and worth over $20,000." The figure "twenty thousand" is the benchmark, we see no mention of greater or lesser valuation. A smaller number of pardonees are not given valuations
