Abraham Lincoln & his proclamation of amnesty...
Item # 568615
December 18, 1863
THE LIBERATOR, Boston, December 18, 1863
* Abraham Lincoln and the Proclamation of Amnesty
This is the famous anti-slavery newspaper by famed abolitionist publisher William Lloyd Garrison. The masthead features two engravings, one of a slave auction and the other showing slaves being emancipated (see).
Beginning at the bottom of the front page and continuing to the top of the second page is an article: "President Lincoln's Message" which has this prefacing comment: "We print, below, all that portion of the Message referring to the war, slavery, and kindred matters." Further on is the complete text of the: "Proclamation Of Amnesty" which is signed in type by the President: Abraham Lincoln (see).
Great to have this content in an anti-slavery newspaper.
Complete in four pages, folio size, very nice condition. Some browning at the folds (see images).
