This is an antique biography - "FREDERICK DOUGLASS" by Charles W. Chesnutt. 1899 1st edition; Small, Maynard & Company; Boston. From "The Beacon Biographies" series. With decorative end papers, a frontispiece portrait of Douglass (with protective tissue paper), an elaborate title page, calendar of important dates, and a brief bibliography for further reading. The book is small in size - it measures 5 3/4" tall x 4" wide. "The aim of this series is to furnish brief, readable, and authentic accounts of the lives of those Americans whose personalities have impressed themselves most deeply on the character and history of their country. On account of the length of the more formal lives, often running into large volumes, the average busy man and woman have not the time or hardly the inclination to acquaint themselves with American biography. In the present series everything that such a reader would ordinarily care to know is given by writers of special competence, who possess in full measure the best contemporary point of view.".
