[PEABODY, Ephraim]. Slavery in the United States: Its Evils, Alleviations, and Remedies. Reprinted from the North American Review, Oct., 1851. Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1851. 1st ed. 36pp. Orig. printed wrappers. Loss of 1-1/2 inches to head of front wrapper, minor wear to spine ends, rear wrapper just starting to separate, else very good. Peabody, a Unitarian minister and Boston educator, was a strong supporter of Frederick Douglass and of abolition. Here he carefully argues issues that include "how far and how fast is the institution of slavery susceptible of change and amelioration-what are the prospects of its being removed -and what can be done to promote its removal."
