by Robinson, Stuart
Toronto: Rollo & Adam, 1865. viii,90pp. Original printed wrappers; rear cover lacking. Front cover heavily worn and chipped, contemporary ownership inscriptions on cover and titlepage. Later library markings on recto and verso of front cover. Minor soiling, but generally quite clean internally. Good plus. A relatively scarce pro-slavery discourse written by a Kentucky minister living in exile in Toronto. Rev. Stuart Robinson was a Kentucky Presbyterian minister and newspaper editor who began publication of the TRUE PRESBYTERIAN in Louisville in 1861; the paper was twice censored and shut down, and in 1863, Robinson moved operations to Toronto, where he remained until 1866, after the close of the Civil War. He wrote a letter to President Lincoln in 1865, denouncing the closing of his newspaper as an outrage on the liberty of the press and of religion. He continued to preach and publish after the war, distinguishing himself in the Presbyterian Church. This copy has the contemporary ownership inscription of James Park of Knoxville, Tennessee, another Presbyterian minister. SABIN 72184. (Inventory #: WRCAM46059)
