John Brown's Career in Kansas:  Paper Prepared for the Veterans of '56, Learnard, O. E. [Oscar Eugene]
3 Learnard, O. E. [Oscar Eugene] John Brown's Career in Kansas: Paper Prepared for the Veterans of '56
N/P N/P First Edition Soft Cover Very Good No Jacket Inscribed and Signed By the Author
No date of publication, though circa 1910; Eight page pamphlet bound in original paper wrap covers, and later bound into a cardboard library binding; Author's inscription at top of original cover reads in full "Complements to Prof. Dunlap [Charles Graham Dunlap] / O. E. Learnard"; Library covers show the book plate of Professor Dunlap and two penciled library notations; There are no other library markings; Though showing light smudges, pamphlet remains in very nice condition and authors inscription is bold and clear; Learnard (1832-1911) founded the town of Burlington, was a district judge, and a lieutenant colonel of the First Kansas Infantry. He was a member of the territorial legislature and one of the first state senators. He chaired the Osawatomie Convention and helped found the Kansas Republican party, of which he was the first chair. He purchased both the Lawrence Daily Journal and the Lawrence Daily Tribune to consolidate under the name "The Lawrence Journal" which he edited until shortly before his death; This very scarce pamphlet disputes much of the popular and historically accepted lore of John Brown's time in Kansas.

John Brown, Soldier of Fortune: A Critique, Wilson, Hill Peebles
4 Wilson, Hill Peebles John Brown, Soldier of Fortune: A Critique
Lawrence, KS Hill P. Wilson 1913 First Edition Cloth Good- No Jacket 
450 pages. Ex-library with inked numbers on spine and small library plate on front paste down. No other library markings. Cloth covers show light edge wear, though with a little fraying at spine ends. Lettering on spine is a little faded, though remains clear and lettering on front cover is good. Inked name and date on front end page. Volume remains tight and is otherwise clean and intact. Somewhat scarce book with a rather unusual view of John Brown, portraying him as a horse thief and an opportunist with little genuine investment in the abolitionist movement. 
Price: 100.00 USD
