About this Item

Brown cloth with paper spine label; one signature loose but attached, wanting front free end-paper. Generally a very good copy of this fragile book. Inscribed by the author on the flyleaf. First edition. Lovejoy, the editor of an anti-slavery newspaper in Alton, Illinois, was attacked and murdered by a pro-slavery mob in 1837. His printing press was also destroyed. The author was fellow abolitionist Edward Beecher, son of Lyman Beecher and brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe and Henry Ward Beecher. Notwithstanding the Alton imprint, it is likely that this was printed in Cincinnati. Howes, B307. Bookseller Inventory # 12405
