About this Item

This book was produced by photographing the original with permission of the Rare Book and Special Collections Division of the Library of Congress. These photographic images were used to create this reproduction. For the paper stock, an archival quality acid-free, gently speckled, husk-colored sheet made by the Crosse Pointe Paper Corporation of Saint Paul, Minnesota was selected as the best match to the paper used in the original documents. The finished replica was bound in a seven-piece case with genuine leather corners and spine, and printed covers taken from the original. The spine was stamped in 22kt gold. This faithful copy makes available to readers a unique document that might be the first piece of writing ever published by an African-American. The publication of this reproduction is part of the Library's program to share its collections more broadly. Book is in fine condition (faintest of edgewear) and includes the Easton Press pamphlet describing the book. There is no attached bookplate, embossed seal, or writing in the book.
