[Civil War] (Hallowell, Norwood Penrose). The Federalist. N.P. Hallowell’s Copy. Hallowell: Masters, Smith & Co., 1857. Disbound, retaining one detached quarter-leather board cover. 8vo. 496pp. Signed on the title page: “N.P. Hallowell/Cambridge 1861.” Needs re-binding, with contents generally sound with occasional spotting, some shaken or loose gatherings. Hallowell graduated from Harvard College the year he signed this copy of The Federalist, most likely a textbook for his final year of study. Almost immediately upon leaving Harvard, Hallowell and his close friend and classmate Oliver Wendell Holmes volunteered for the Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry of the Union Army. In the ensuing two years of the war, he rose to the rank of colonel, and together with his brother they commanded the 54th Massachusetts, one of the first all-black regiments in the U.S. Civil War, whose exploits were dramatized in the 1989 film Glory.
The Federalist. N.P. Hallowell’s Copy.
