Ginn & Co. 1897 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Green cover some writing inside otherwise very good. Concerning the imperial controversy at the time Burke (Edmund) argued that the British government had acted in a both unwise and inconsistent manner. Again, Burke claimed that Britain's way of dealing with the colony question was strictly legal and he urged that also "claims of circumstance, utility, and moral principle should be considered, as well as precedent"(...432). In other words, if the British, persistently clinging to their narrow legalism, were not to clash with the ideas and opinions of the colonists on these matters, they would have to offer more respect and regard for the colonies' cause. Burke called for "legislative reason" in two of his parliamentary speeches on the subject; On American Taxation (1774) and On Moving His Resolutions for Conciliation With America (1775). However, British imperial policy in the controversy would continue to ignore these questions. ; 12mo 7" - 7˝" tall; 152 pages

Charlottsville, Va University Press 1976 0813906458 / 9780813906454 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
First edition signed by the author on title page, John H. Moore. The focus of this volume is on the people of Albemarle County over a two hundred and fifty year history. The study is divided into parts by "turning points" in local life-1727m 1820, 1888, and 1945. (from cover flap) After almost 90 years, 25 books, numerous articles and millions of words, Columbia historian John Hammond Moore sums up any advice he might have for others this way:“Keep going.”For decades, this historian/journalist/scholar has done just that: Kept traveling. Researching. Interviewing. Editing. Teaching. Writing. He’s delved into a gazillion topics from Confederate food to German prisoners of war in America during World War II, to lynchings in South Carolina to a pre-Hollywood biography of 1940s era movie star Errol Flynn. “John is so thorough, so careful in his writing – he’s made major contributions to our understanding of South Carolina history,” says Allen Stokes, who for 25 years was director of the University of South Carolina’s Caroliniana Library, the state’s major university history repository.; ; Signed by Author
