About This Item
CLINTON, Henry. Observations on Earl Cornwallis' Answer. Phila.: John Campbell, 1866. Large 4to. 1st American ed. 113,  pp. Folding chart. Orig. printed wrappers. Light chipping and some speckling, else a very good copy. One of 75 copies. HOWES C-499. William Brotherhead, in his Forty Years among the Old Booksellers of Philadelphia, writes of Campbell, "When he arrived here he at once pushed with resistless energy into political and religious disputes, and soon became a marked man among the most violent of extremists. ... John Campbell was the fiery antagonist of the poor African. His views he afterwards elaborated in "Negromania," a violent and one-sided diatribe. The book did not meet with public favor, and was the cause of finanancial embarrassment. ... Some twenty-five years ago, there was a rage among old book buyers for reprints of old scarce books. John got the fever, and he published some of them; but ere long the fever died out, and John had many that were left unsold--whether they are all sold now or not I don't know.
