Extracts from the American Slave Code [caption title]
[Salem, OH: Anti-Slavery Bugle, circa 1840]. 8vo. (8 7/8 x 5 5/8 inches). 4pp.
Unbound, as issued
Scarce anti-slavery tract published in Ohio.
This tract reprints laws in southern states relating to slaves. Stated on the head of the first page "Second edition of 10,000 ... Read and Circulate" this is the only recorded edition. At the bottom of the last page is an advertisement for the Anti-Slavery Bugle with the note that "copies of this tract can be had gratis, by applying at the office of the Bugle. Subscriptions to National A.S. Standard, Liberator, Pennsylvania Freeman, and Herald of Freedom received at same place." The tract can be dated to circa 1840, as the National Anti-Slavery Standard was founded in that year (OCLC misdates the tract to 1829 based on that date within the text of the tract).
