W. I. Pooley & Co., New York. 1864, vii, 376p., first edition 8x5 inch cloth boards decorated in blind, spine title gilt. A blank bears a very old presentation inscription in pencil with full names of giver and recipient. Boards are badly rubbed and edgeworn, with fraying and much card showing, textblock and hinges are sound with small stains here and there. The Protestant Episcopal bishop of Vermont argues, even as the Civil war raged on that the bible condones slavery, and would favor its gradual abolition only as a counterweight to 'ultra-abolitionism' that would drown the country in blood for its own ends
