Description

    Webster, Daniel: SPEECH OF...IN THE SENATE, IN REPLY TO MR. CALHOUN'S SPEECH ON THE BILL 'FURTHER TO PROVIDE FOR THE COLLECTION OF DUTIES ON IMPORTS.' February 16, 1833. Washington: 1833. 48pp, sewn, untrimmed, small lib. rubber stamp. Light wear, Very Good. Webster was a Union man, first and foremost. This rebuttal of Calhoun's Nullification Doctrine-- thirty years before the issue was settled by force of arms-- stands as the best pre-War constitutional exposition of an unbreakable Union. If Calhoun were right that each state could reserve for itself the interpretation of national law, Webster argues, the Constitution "would speak with as many tongues as the builders of Babel, and in dialects as much confused, and mutually as much intelligible." FIRST EDITION. Sabin 102283. AI 22568. Peterson 223

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
