About this Item

Broadside, 9 3/4 x 9 inches. Trimmed raggedly on left edge, affecting a few letters. Evenly tanned, minor soiling. Docketed on verso. About very good. Wanted poster for a runaway slave, posted by A.B. Berry of Prince George's County, Maryland, near Bladensburg. Berry offers $50 for "a negro man named Jim, about 5 feet 6 inches high, bright mulatto, full suit of hair, no marks recollected. He is about 24 years of age, and has rather a down look when spoken to. He has a variety of clothing, which he took with him. Jim was raised by Dr. John Wootton, late of Prince George's co. I will give the above reward for his apprehension and return to me, or placing him in jail, so that I get him again." Albert B. Berry, of the milling firm Berry & Taylor, was active in financing the slave, cotton, and speculating enterprises of the Old South. While slavery was common in Maryland, such wanted posters are usually from more southern locales. A rare and ephemeral piece. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 46709
