The historic Slavery Abolition Act of 1833...

Obituary of the famed abolitionist William Wilberforce...



Item # 644289
THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, England, September, 1833  Near the back is the: "Obituary - William Wilberforce" which takes over 3 pages. Wilberforce was a member of Parliament who lead the charge to abolish slavery. The historic Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 would receive the Royal Assent on Aug. 26, less than a month after his death. This incredible historical event is mentioned briefly within the Historical Chronicle (see photos). Terrific to find these both accounts within the same issue.
Additionally, the issue begins with a letter: "Establishment of the British Empire In India" which was nearly a century old, with some focus on slavery in India and the suppression of it (see for portions). This articles takes nearly 6 pages. Yet another brief articles has: "Armenian Christians". Included is the foldout plate called for, plus other unrelated illustrations.
Complete in 96 pages, 5 by 8 1/2 inches, full title/contents page, nice condition.
