1907. Granger, Moses Moorhead. A FAIR ANSWER TO THE CONFEDERATE APPEAL AT RICHMOND. [Self-published, 1907]. 12mo., printed blue wraps; 32 pages. First- and only- edition. A treatise debunking many claims made by Southern states and politicians that led to the Civil War. "Richmond" in the title refers to the unveiling of a statue of Jefferson Davis on June 3, 1907 in that city and speeches at the time stating that Davis and the Southern states will eventually be vindicated for their actions leading to and during the Civil War. Granger [1831-1913] was born and also died in Zanesville, Ohio, where he was a lawyer and a judge. He served with Company S of the 122nd Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War, where he earned the ranks of Lt. Colonel and Colonel. With an autograph note signed by Granger inside the front cover discussing some copyright confusion over the book's publication and with a "Publisher's Weekly" ink stamp on the same page. With another lengthy autograph note on the last page by Granger, discussing the politics and various historic events that led to the war, mentioning The Missouri Compromise, The Nebraska Bill, etc. Very rare, with the only copies I have been able to locate in institutional libraries. Good condition (some chipping covers but contents clean & tight; some repair to covers, spine & inside front cover with clear archival tape). $1,250.00.
