A series of lectures on Hebrew poetry, largely Dick’s critical effusions on the verses from the Old Testament (though later poets of the diaspora are covered to a certain extent); the pamphlet appears well-received in the columns of various North Carolina newspapers of 1883. The final page of ads offers instruction at Dick’s own Greensboro Law School ($80 for the full course; $50 per session); Dick was evidently a native Tarheel, a North Carolina Unionist, and a Republican after the Civil War, appointed by Grant to the U. S. District Court. This copy with an attractive contemporary trade card laid in for William C. Doub, Bookseller, Stationer and Newsdealer, Greensboro, N. C., presumably the original source of this copy.
