William Wilberforce on the slave trade... Marshall's "Life of Washington" reviewed...



Item # 673888 GAZETTE OF THE UNITED STATES, For The Country, Philadelphia, May 18, 1807

* William Wilberforce speaks before the British Parliament re: the slave trade
* Review of Supreme Court Justice John Marshall's "Life of Washington"


The back page has a discussion of the Slave Trade in the House of Commons - a portion which includes an impassioned response by William Wilberforce.
The front page has a review of John Marshall's "Life of Washington" - it being the first biography of a United States President. Interesting to note it was released while he was serving as the 4th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Complete in 4 pages, a bit of wear, some dampstaining with slight evidence of (inert) mildew stains, in average condition. The two main articles are quite nice. See images for details.
