    Lyman, Theodore 3d: PAPERS RELATING TO THE GARRISON MOB. Boston: 1870. 73pp, original wrappers (small tears and discoloration of spine, institutional blindstamp and label on front wrapper], stitched. Good+ to Very Good. __ Even in Boston, "(t)he racial equalitarianism openly embraced by Garrison and many other abolitionists after 1830 added a provocative new element to the slavery controversy. It intensified the fury of southern reaction and was apparently the principal stimulus to an outburst of violent anti-abolitionist activity in the North." Fehrenbacher The Dred Scott Case 120. This document recounts the 1835 near-riot which prevented Garrison's anti-slavery meeting, and resulted in his being taken into protective custody. The author, son of the then-Mayor, wants to clear his father's name, for the elder Lyman had been accused of cooperating with the mob. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 42804. LCP Afro-Am. 6150.
