Massachusetts Abolitionist, Volume I, Numbers 1-52
Boston: George Russell 1839-40. Periodical. Folio. Very good, bound in worn three quarter leather and marbled boards with some dampstaining and light foxing to the leaves, but all pages quite sound and legible. With the ownership signature of noted abolitionist minister Alanson St. Clair. The first fifty-two issues of the Massachusetts Abolitionist, dated from February 7, 1839 through February 13, 1840. The Massachusetts Abolitionist was published from 1839-1841 as the voice of the Massachusetts Abolitionist Society, whose members had split off from the American Anti-Slavery Society due to differences with the policies of William Lloyd Garrison. Its first editor, Elizur Wright Jr., was later celebrated as the "father of life insurance" due to his early work with actuarial tables.
