    [Anti-Slavery]. Collection of Anti-Slavery Pamphlets. [Various places: 1820's-1860's]. With manuscript poems and accounts of travel.

    More Information:

    Various paginations. Collection bound in nineteenth-century half brown calf over marbled boards, rebacked to style in later brown calf, red gilt morocco lettering label on spine. Some wear, soiling to binding, hinges starting, front free endpaper loose. Fair.

    This interesting collection includes several anti-slavery broadsides, reports of minutes of anti-slavery associations, newspaper extracts, a fold-out plan of a slave-ship showing the horribly crowded conditions (torn at several joints), several smaller pamphlets, a manuscript poem about the horrors of slavery by "Charlotte Elizabeth," and a lengthy manuscript account of a tour of the Middle East (possibly a fair copy of another work) in an unknown hand. On the final leaf is a mounted cabinet portrait of a seated man, captioned "Stern" in manuscript.
