Dust jacket has very slight edge wear, a few tiny closed edge tears, not price clipped. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Beginning with the debates of the 1850's, Justice Douglas traces the development of Lincoln's attitude toward negroes from its early formulation in a world where even opponents of slavery "relegated the Nwegro to second-class citizenship." We see Lincoln walking the painful path from opposition to the extension of slavery, through bloody war, to Emancipation and the Second Inaugural Address. 025644

Father Abraham, Faulkner, William
6 Father Abraham
Faulkner, William
New York Random House 1984 039453722X / 9780394537221 First Hardcover Fine Fine Jacket 
First Edition, first printing in clean unclipped dust jacket. Clean brown cloth boards with gold lettering on spine. No fading, bumping or wear. As new condition. Binding is tight and square, pages and edges are clean and bright. Clean endpapers - no names, writing or marks. Edited, with an Introduction and textual note, by James B. Meriwether. 73 pages. Clean dust jacket is unchipped, no wear, no tears, not price clipped. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Not a fragment, not quite a finished work, probably written in 1926 by William Faulkner. Apparently it was the beginning of the novel of which it became an important part, "The Hamlet", which Faulkner finally completed for publication in 1940. A valuable element in the study and analysis of the stages of revision and restructuring a major work goes through before it is ultimately regarded by its author as finished. 026192
