1890 1ed Jefferson Davis Confederate States President

1890 1ed Jefferson Davis Confederate States President Civil War Battles SLAVERY "A sentimentalized account, including parts which Davis dictated before his death.” (Nevins) A rare first edition of Mrs. Varina Davis’s account of her husband, Jefferson Davis’s life. This book is an important view into the life in the Confederate States of America, following the American Civil War. This book also includes Davis’s views on African Slave trade as well as the modeling of the Confederate Constitution from the United States Constitution. Other important topics include the Confederate preparation for war, recaps of various battles and skirmishes from the Civil War, CSA presidency, and more. According to Larned, “Mrs. Davis’s memoir furnished what her husbnad’s book greatly lacked: the story of the personal and social life in the Confederate executive mansion. His work was severely controversial: hers is an amiable and vivacious presentation of men, women, and events, drawn with insight and full knowledge. It gives us valuable pictures and telling comments, and must always have high rank in its sphere. No doubt it also reflects in considerable measure Mr. Davis’s own opinions, softened in the presentation.” Item number: #4994 Price: $750 DAVIS, Varina Jefferson Jefferson Davis ex-president of the Confederate States of America : a memoir New York : Belford, 1890. First edition.

1880 History of England BEAUTIFUL Macaulay James

1880 History of England BEAUTIFUL Macaulay James Glorious Revolution Mary II 5v Thomas Babington Macaulay was a 19th-century English historian known for his ‘History of England’. This five volume work, began in 1848, covers an important 17 year period at the end of the 17th-century in which he includes the reign of James II, the Glorious Revolution, and the joint reign of William and Mary. While most historians find this work accurate and reliable, Karl Marx was highly critical of this work calling it a ‘systematic falsifier’. Perhaps this sentiment comes from Macaulay’s views of making the English royals to be legendary heroes in a narrative sort of manner. According to J.R. Western, “Macaulay's History of England has still to be superseded by a full-scale modern history of the period.” Item number: #5486 Price: $350 MACAULAY, Thomas Babington The history of England from accession of James II New York: Harper & Brothers, [1880].
