Very Rare 1852 FREDERICK DOUGLASS NEWSPAPER North Star Slavery Slaves Abolition (Note: additional images are located below the description) Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: FREDERICK DOUGLASS' PAPER, Rochester, New York, August 13, 1852

* Extremely rare title

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.
Douglass was perhaps the most famous 19th century African-American abolitionist who escaped from slavery and then risked his freedom by becoming an outspoken antislavery lecturer, writer, and publisher.

Among the various articles in this issue are those headed "Cotton Divinity and Infidelity" "The Free Colored People's Convention" "Free Soil Convention" "Light In The South" "Second Anti-Slavery Festival" "Counterpart to Uncle Tom" & much more.

Complete in four pages, never bound nor trimmed, two folds with minimal wear at the fold juncture, minimal foxing at the folds. Generally nice condition.

A very fine and rare opportunity for one of the more sought-after titles of the 19th century.

Please Note: All of our offerings are 100% authentic! We do not offer reprints or reproductions of any kind. They are guaranteed to be original!
