The Sixteenth Annual Report of the American Society for Colonizing the Free People of Colour of the United States

Washington DC: James C. Dunn, 1833. First Edition. Slim octavo (20.5cm.); disbound; xxii,[2],40pp. Preliminary leaves separated from textblock (but still complete), the whole toned and faintly dampstained, loss at bottom fore-edge corner of title page not quite touching text. Good only. Report by the Society which founded the colony of Liberia with the intention of encouraging emancipated African-Americans to emigrate as an alternative to abolition. Needless to say, many freedmen found the scheme racist, especially in light of the high mortality rate of emigrés in the colony.

Price: $125.00
