Publisher: J.B. Yerrington & Son, Boston
Publication Date: 1858
Folio (25" X 18"). Self-cover. 4pp, numbered 13-16. Very good. Mild age toning, faint edgewear and usual folds, but overall clean, nice and quite handlable. A superb full issue of the most famous abolitionist newspaper of them all, beginning in 1831 and running weekly until 1865. Large provocative masthead, subtitled "Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbor," depicts Jesus at center with the wraparound caption "I Come to Break the Bonds of the Oppressor," while a slave auction takes place to the left of this and a plantation slave family celebrates emancipation to the right of this. Six columns of this large paper report slavery and abolitionist events from around the country. Front page headlines include: "Refuge of Oppression: What the Slave-Driving South Demands of Massachusetts," "Increase and Horrors of the Slave Trade," "Southern Supremacy on Congress," "Thrilling Congressional Reminiscence," etc. A wonderful example in far better than average condition.
