scarce In 1838, William C Nell (1816-1874) black abolitionist and author advertised in William Lloyd Garrison's "Liberator" that 12 copies of this lithograph would be for sale. While it is not known for certain that Nell commissioned this portrait of Toussaint, he was an agent for its sale. Nell had commissioned engraved portraits for sale as a means of sponsoring and supporting his activities and was responsible for several engraved series, including the noted "Heralds of Freedom," representing both white and black abolitionists.
