Octavo, pp. [i-iii] iv-v [vi] [3-5] 6-161 [162: blank], flyleaves at front and rear, publisher's green decorated cloth stamped in blind and gold, light brown coated endpapers. First edition. This volume, complete by itself, is part of a series articles on various public topics published in the HUDSON GAZETTE and DAILY REGISTER between 1876 and 1884 by John Francis Collin (1802-1889), a prominent farmer and politician, born in Hillsdale, New York. He served as member of the New York state assembly in 1834. He was elected as a Democrat to the Twenty-ninth Congress (March 4, 1845 - March 3, 1847). A pro-farm, anti-Republican, anti-protective tariff, anti-Chinese campaign document that states that unless the people save us at the next election "a comparative few unprincipled men, and countless millions of Chinese ... will establish the most arbitrary government on the face of the earth, sustained by Chinese bayonets." A very good copy. Uncommon. (#155720).
