Report of the Decision of the Supreme Court of the United States... in the Case of Dred Scott versus John F. A. Sandford

By HOWARD, Benjamin C.

Washington: Cornelius Wendell, Printer, 1857. Near Fine. First edition. Octavo. 239pp. Printed buff wrappers. Small tears and a little chipping at the bottom of the front joint, but a handsome and sound, else near fine copy. Scott was a slave who with his wife lived in free state Illinois and returned to slave state Missouri with his owners. Scott sued for his freedom and initially won, but that decision was overturned 7-2 in what is considered maybe the worst decision in Supreme Court history. The ensuing controversy further ignited the debate over slavery and directly infvluenced the path towards the Civil War. Rebound copies occasionally appear, wrappered copies are much less common. An extremely important American document. *Howes S-218; Grolier American # 66; Sabin 33240.*.
