1863 American Anti Slavery / Emancipation Proclamation Pamphlet / Civil War For Sale
Very Rare, original, 1863 American Anti Slavery / African American History / Civil War Subject Pamphlet relating directly to the Emancipation Proclamation.
This rare pamphlet is titled "The Death of Slavery. A Letter From Peter Cooper to Governor Seymour”. New York, October 1863. Published by the "Loyal Publication Society and printed by William C. Bryant & Co. This fascinating Anti-Slavery and Pro Union Pamphlet measures approx. 5 3/4” by 9" and contains 8 pages plus its original paper wraps. This fascinating little work is a letter written to the Governor of New York by a 73 year old "life long Democrat" who saw service in the Revolutionary War from beginning to end. It is a letter full of patriotism and loyalty to the Union AND the President who had earlier in the year issued his Emancipation Proclamation. Even more so, this heartfelt Letter is a rational and fervent plea to the nation (read here "North") to prosecute the War, preserve the Constitution and bring an end to the abomination of slavery.
This very rare, ORIGINAL, 1863 Anti-Slavery Pamphlet is bound in its original paper wraps and is in very good condition. The covers are intact and sound with some light edge wear and some light soiling. The internal pages are complete and in excellent condition - clean and crisp throughout. The Pamphlet shown no signs of ever having been bound in a Volume and is "as issued".

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
