frontis (portrait), (2), [15]-91p. 23cm. Original cloth, recently rebacked (most of original backstrip, which was in pieces, mounted). Original free endpaper preserved upon which is written "Miss Lottie Wilson" and "Mrs. J. B. Jackson." 23cm. Significant foxing (quite heavy on portrait and title-leaf). Garnet was one of the most prominent African American abolitionists and the first African American permitted to address the House of Representatives (delivering a Sunday sermon). As to the former owner, we believe it was Lottie Wilson Jackson of Bay City, Michigan who was the African American delegate to the 1899 Convention of the National American Women's Suffrage Association who proposed (unsuccessfully) that the NAWSA adopt a resolution stating that "Colored women ought not to be compelled to ride in smoking cars, and that suitable accommodations should be found for them.".
