A note laid-in describes this as the copy belonged to James Davis Porter, stamp to verso of title, the binding worn with the spine cracked vertically. The last state to secede from the Union, Tennessee is second only to Virginia in the number of Civil War battles fought on its soil; further, Unionist East Tennessee attempted to secede from Confederate West Tennessee and was occupied by Confederate troops in 1861. Thus, all Confederate imprints from the state are rare and very little was printed in Nashville in 1863 and 1864. The Extra Session from April 1861 (Crandall 2139) contains pro-secession arguments. The lot eight volumes. C The New York City Bar Association
