The Duties of Defeat; An Address Delivered Before the University of North Carolina June 7th, 1866

Raleigh, NC: William B. Smith & Company, June 6, 1866. First Edition. Wrappers rebound in boards. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing from a Confederate-State Publisher issued shortly after the Civil War [which began on April 12, 1861 [when the Confederate army began the Battle of Fort Sumter in South Carolina, just over a month after the first inauguration of Abraham Lincoln] and ended on April 9, 1865 [when Confederate General Lee surrendered to Union General Grant at the Battle of Appomattox Court House five days before Abraham Lincoln was assassinated]. The pamphlet is housed in a cardboard binding and held by blue tape that attaches to blank portions of the wrappers, is also stapled at the spine, and contains the speech delivered on June 7, 1866 by then-former North Carolina Governor Zebulon Baird Vance to the Literary Societies of the University of North Carolina. The pagination is in type but also is written in pencil (perhaps as a result of this pamphlet having once having been included in a larger volume with other works), and remains in nice condition with some minor defects to the exterior faces of the wrappers. Very good. Item #3869
