London: John Snow, n. d. [1843]. 1st ed. Hardcover. viii, 360p. Original cloth. 22 cm. Minor spine sloping. Modest spot on front cover. Front endpaper is split at hinge, has a stain along the top and the inked name of a former owner (Charles E. Hodge or Hodges and dated 1852). Scattered, mostly light, foxing. The title and Preface leaves have a short tear in right margin. All leaves should be handled carefully to avoid adding more short tears. Despite this litany of condition flaws, this is a really appealing copy. The Convention was attended almost exclusively by white British abolitionists and a smattering of white abolitionists from America and elsewhere. As far as we can tell, the only African American in attendance was Rev. James W. C. Pennington who was sent by the Connecticut Anti-Slavery Society. The index locates Hartford's Pennington on 10 pages -- sometimes for when he spoke and sometimes when he was mentioned by name. Very Good. Item #90529
