Additional Details

rare "souvenir"of Frederick Douglass's home at Anacostia. No copies of this booklet could be found in OCLC or any other reference consulted. It is quite possible, given the lack of any text, that this was a proof before text. There are two photographs of the Douglass home in Anacostia and one of Douglass, with his back to the camera, in his library---an intriguing look at Douglass's books!
