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.

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.
