The last delivery of slaves to America...



Item # 666117

December 12, 1858

NEW YORK HERALD, December 12, 1858 

* The Wanderer (slave ship) lands in Georgia

Page 5 has a brief, discrete but historic report with small heading: "The Yacht Wanderer" 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 images for reporting here.
Other news of the day with several interesting advertisements. Complete in 8 pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise very nice.
