"The North Star" becomes "Frederick Douglass' Paper"...

Item # 697755

May 20, 1852

FREDERICK DOUGLASS' PAPER, Rochester, New York, May 20, 1852 

* Extremely rare publication

We are pleased to offer this exceedingly rare--and highly desirable--newspaper by the famed Frederick Douglass. This weekly title is the continuation of his newspaper "North Star" which began in 1847.
Much of page 2 is taken up with: "The Annual Meeting of the American Anti-Slavery Society". Page 3 has a: "Letter of Frederick Douglass to Gerrit Smith, Esq., Respecting Lewis Kossuth" signed in type: Frederick Douglass. And also details of the: "Meeting of the Anti-Slavery Society" at Rochester.
Complete in four pages, never bound nor trimmed, of large folio size. A bit irregular at the margin but not affecting any type. A few small & discrete archival mends, mostly at margins. The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
A very fine and rare opportunity for one of the more sought-after titles of the 19th century.
