New York City Anti-Slavery Society:

ADDRESS OF THE NEW-YORK CITY ANTI-SLAVERY SOCIETY, TO THE PEOPLE OF THE CITY OF NEW-YORK.

West & Trow, New York: 1833 46pp, lightly foxed, small inner margin remnant of original wraps. Disbound, else Very Good. The Society's Constitution is included, pledging it "to effect a total and immediate abolition of Slavery in the United States." Relying on the Declaration of Independence, the Address urges "that all property of man in man should instantly cease;" explicitly disavows gradual emancipation and colonization; recognizes that Congress has no authority over slavery in the several States; and argues that the law of American slavery renders it far harsher than slavery in other countries. Hoping for "a reformed public opinion," the Society promises to go to work. Two printings issued this year, this one and one from The Emancipator. Dumond 84. AI 20421 [6]. LCP 7078 records The Emancipator printing. Not in Blockson.
