Additional Details

a fine association copy with the ownership signature of abolitionist samuel j. may at the top of the title-page. This little pamphlet was abolitionist William Ellery Channing's (1780-1842) last published work. It is a favorable report on the results of Emancipation in the West Indies, which he hoped would be an inducement for the United States to follow the example. Samuel J. May (1797-1871) was an ardent abolitionist and one of the co-founders of the American Anti-Slavery Society, the publishers of this tract.
