[Nullification]:

DEFENCE OF A LIBERAL CONSTRUCTION OF THE POWERS OF CONGRESS, AS REGARDS INTERNAL IMPROVEMENT, ETC. WITH A COMPLETE REFUTATION OF THE ULTRA DOCTRINES RESPECTING CONSOLIDATION AND STATE SOVEREIGNTY. WRITTEN BY GEORGE M'DUFFIE, ESQ. IN THE YEAR 1821. OVER THE SIGNATURE OF "ONE OF THE PEOPLE." TO WHICH ARE PREFIXED AN ENCOMIASTIC ADVERTISEMENT OF THE WORK, BY MAJOR (NOW GOVERNOR) HAMILTON, AND A PREFACE BY THE AUTHOR.

Printed by Lydia R. Bailey, No. 26, North Fifth Street, Philadelphia: 1st [2], 22pp. Disbound with light wear and soil, Good+. A nice example of Lydia Bailey's printing press at work, in behalf of the National Government's authority during the Nullification Crisis precipitated by South Carolina's rejection of the tariffs of 1828 and 1832. Hoisting South Carolinians McDuffie and Hamilton by their own petard, this pamphlet prints their writings advocating a strong national government [when it suited their State's interest to do so]. In 1821 McDuffie, South Carolina's junior senator, had written, "Ambitious men, of inferior talents, finding they have no hope to be distinguished in the councils of the general government, naturally wish to increase the power and consequence of the state governments, the theatres in which they expect to acquire distinction." This pamphlet denounces "the fervid atmosphere of South Carolina." Second and third printings quickly followed. The third edition is dated November 23, 1832. FIRST EDITION. AI 8057 [6]. BEAL 6288. Not in Hudak, Turnbull, LCP, Decker, Eberstadt.
