    Slave Auction Broadside: Exceptional, Large 1847-Dated Poster Announcing an Auction Featuring "1 Small Negro Girl" By order of the Frederick County, Maryland Orphans Court, printed by Brady & Rhoderick, who also served as the "Catoctin Whig Office". Excellent condition, with only a couple of very trivial wrinkles and a very faint "phantom" imprint from another broadside, which was long stored in contact with this one, almost undetectable except on careful examination. A tiny bit of trivial edge roughness near the top of the left side. Perhaps the finest slave auction broadside we have ever handled. 14" x 16.5".

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
