August 22, 1862

THE LIBERATOR, Boston, Aug. 22, 1862  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).
The first 1 1/2 columns of the front page are taken up with: "The President On African Colonization" "His Address to a Committee of Colored Men--A Negro Colony Recommended in Central America" which has lengthy coverage of Lincoln's meeting with a group of African-Americans and offering some fascinating insight. One bit notes Lincoln mentioned: "...you and we are a different race. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both...If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated..." with more (see).
Other articles in this issue include: "Rights of White Labor Over Black" "Loyal Blacks" "The Slave-Catching Business Lively in New Orleans" "Enrollment of Colored Citizens" "The President on African Colonization" and much more. The back page includes: "Death of Anthony Burns" of fugitive slave law notoriety (see).
A great wealth of fine reading. Four pages, a few foxing spots, generally very nice condition.
