First Edition. 141[1], [14]pp. 12mo. One of the first American publications to call for immediate emancipation: "Its invectives are so keen and so pungent as to have formed the model for that style of denouncing the evils of slavery which became afterward so noted in the armory of Garrison and his friend, Wendell Phillips, and others." Indeed, Bourne, a Presbyterian minister who was removed from his pulpit in Virginia for his views on slavery, went so far as to proclaim slaveholding as a sin. Scarce.
