Softcover. First edition. Octavo. Turquoise printed wrappers. Light soiling to the edges, a moderate chip to the rear wrap at the corner, very good. Inscribed by Thomas Haines Dudley, a New Jersey Quaker and lawyer, best known for his abolitionist activities. In 1845 he disguised himself as a slave trader in a successful scheme to rescue a New Jersey African-American family that had been kidnapped into slavery. During the Civil War, Lincoln appointed him Consul to Liverpool, England, an important city in the cotton industry. As United States Consul, Dudley was able to stop the illegal delivery of cotton by many ships from the Confederate states.
