About this Item

"That slavery then is a violation of justice, will plainly appear. . . . Now, as freedom is unquestionably the birth-right of all mankind, Africans as well as Europeans, to keep the former in a state of slavery is a constant violation of that right and therefore of justice." This strong anti-slavery sentiment, addressed to the Virginia Assembly, was first printed outside of the Virginia Gazette in 1767 as an addition to Anthony Benezet's A caution and warning to Great-Britain, and her colonies. Whether it was also issued separately in 1767 is unclear. There were several editions and variants of editions of this work attributed to Arthur Lee on the basis of statements in G.S. Brooke's Friend Anthony Benezet (pp. 301, 332, and 422), and we refer the interested reader to the records of the North American Imprint Project for the decipherment of them. Small 12mo. 4 pp. Evans 16773; Hildeburn, The Issues of the Press in Pennsylvania, 1685?1784, 4006. Five-digit number stamped above the title; pp. 1 and 2 separated from 3 and 4, and gutter margin repaired, reattaching the halves. Semicircular tear in lower, inside area of all pages, costing a total of 9 or 10 words now supplied separately. Bookseller Inventory # 3144
