1860 - 1880. JOHN BROWN And WM. MAHONE. An Historical Parallel, Foreshadowing Civil Trouble.

Richmond, VA: C. F. Johnston, 918 Main Street. 1880. 1st edition (BAL 572). 23, [1 (blank)] pp. 12mo. 5-3/4" x 4-1/4". Printed self-wrappers, sewn. Modest wear & soiling. Price 'blacked out' on front wrapper. A VG copy of an uncommon 19th C political campaign pamphlet. Item #33969

A political tract, anti-Grant & anti-Mahone, issued during the latter's 1880 run for U. S. Senator from Virginia; Bagby predicts a civil war worse than that of the early '60s, as well as an odd political triumbirate of Grant, Mahone and the former Confederate guerilla, John S. Mosby.

"Miserable South! ... despised by all the world, and for no crime but that you Chritianized a race of savages thrust upon you by mercantile greed -- how sad is your fate!"
