Lowndes [pseud.]:

THE LETTERS OF LOWNDES, ADDRESSED TO THE HON. JOHN C. CALHOUN. AUDI ET ALTERAM PARTEM.

Appleton, New York and Philadelphia: 1843 Original printed wrappers, stitched. 100, [12 publ. advts] pp. One Charles Allen Lewis of Indianapolis has affixed his bookplate to the front wrapper instead of its verso; wrappers worn at spine and corners. Very Good. No one seems to know who 'Lowndes' is. None of the cited bibliographies collates the publisher's ads. American Imprints alone records a second New York printing from this year but does not collate it. Lowndes says he publishes these letters to show the public who the real Calhoun is. The real Calhoun is not the man portrayed in a recently-issued campaign biography, which asserts he has always been a Free-Trader, opposing the Bank of the United States and denying the National Government's power to fund internal improvements. In fact, Lowndes demonstrates, Calhoun originally was a National Federalist or Whig rather than a Southern Sectionalist. At one time he favored the policies that he now opposes. III Turnbull 483. AI 43-3122 [5]. Sabin 42532. Not in Eberstadt, Decker.
