The last delivery of slaves to America...
Item # 664850
December 13, 1858
NEW YORK HERALD, December 13, 1858
* The Wanderer (slave ship) lands in Georgia
The top of page 4 has a report with small heading: "Is the Slave Trade Reopened ?" with a Savannah dateline. This is an infamous ship, as the Wanderer's notoriety is that it delivered the last load of African slaves to America (see hyperlink for corroboration). See mages for reporting here.
Other news of the day with several interesting advertisements. Complete in 8 pages, irregular along the spine, small printing flaw at the beginning of mentioned report (see), otherwise very nice.
