Item Description: R. Taylor and Co. for Longman Hurst Rees and Orme, London, 1808. Leather w Gilt Decoration. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. This increasingly scarce two volume set 572 and 592 pages, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers ORIGINAL binding. Said binding being full tan leather with extreme gilt ornamewntation on the spines. The set is overall quite solid and clean, but the front board of volume one has separated at the hinge, but cleanly so, so as to make repair rather easy.Other than that the only deficit appears to be that of the three illustrations, the one depicting the lauyout of human cargo is missing, thus the far below market value pricing. 1 This work and the startling horror of real slavery thus depicted generated a national movement in Britain which mobilized public opinion, resulting in the Slave Trade Act of 1807 which ended the English slave trade. Remarkable well-kept. There is little doubt that Clarkson's work was instrumental in the ending of the British slave trade -- he was indefatigable, nearly killing himself with travel, lectures and writing until this was accomplished after several decades of effort. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardcover Set. Bookseller Inventory # 007179
