Susan B. Anthony petitions for woman's rights... 'Inside View of Slavery...'
Item # 680991
October 23, 1855
NEW YORK SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE, Oct. 23, 1855
* Susan B. Anthony
* African slave trade
The bottom of the front page has an article: "Woman's Rights" concerning the appeal--led by Susan B. Anthony--to the law-makers of New York to work for the: "...restoration of woman's legal and political rights..." and notes that: "...Forms of petition, also woman's rights, tracts, may be had of Susan B. Anthony, Rochester, N.Y." Included is the text of the "Woman's Rights Petition" address to the Assembly of the state of New York, with all 4 petitions.
Also of interest is a very lengthy review of a new book: "Inside View of Slavery, or, A Tour Among the Planters" by C. G. Parsons. This was a quite notable work, the review taking most of the page.
Eight pages, some foxing to the front page, nice condition.
