Gold spine letters "Buck's Dictionary" is faded. Laid into this book is a very small, contemporary newspaper clipping : "PUBLIC ANTI-SLAVERY MEETING. Rev. Jehiel C. Beman, agent of the American Anti-Slavery Society will deliver an address at the Abysinian Free Will Baptist Church, corner of Meeting and Congdon streets, on Thursday evening next, 25th at 6 1 2 o'clock. The public are respectfully invited to attend." This book is signed in pencil on the front endpaper "J.C.Beman for C. A. Beman" Again, the J.C. Beman autograph appears on last free endpaper. Laid in, on a small piece of plain white paper, in pencil are numerous simple math additions, multiplications. Also, on this paper in brown ink, done in a "fancy" handwriting is "Rev. A. Beman Presents" And on the verso is written : "Roman 5.1" On the Beinecke Yale library website, there are many letters with examples of Amos Beman's autograph and these confirm that this slip of paper was apparently signed by him. Amos Beman, a black minister in New Haven, Ct., was a national mid-19th.century leader, a proponant of abolution, suffrage ,Temperance & educational & moral reform. His father, Jehiel Beman was appointed pastor of the first African American Church in Ct. Jehiel worked tirelessly for emancipation & civil rights and his grandfather, Caesar Beman, had been manumitted after serving in the Revolutionary War. As an association copy, this religious dictionary has an amazing provenace. Please "Ask Bookseller" if this is available before ordering. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory #
