In his first autobiography, Douglass described his experiences as a slave in the1845 workNarrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, which became a bestseller, and was influential in promoting the cause of abolition. His second book, My Bondage and My Freedom (1855) contnued his efforts. after the Civil War Douglass remained an active campaigner against slavery and wrote his last autobiography, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass. This is a copy of the second of these books. Condition is VG. There has been some light restoration done to smooth out a few bubbles in the cloth binding and repair and strengthen the head and foor of the spine, as well as clean the binding. The interior pages are toned and there is some light foxing especially on the end papers. However, the hinges are tight , the binding secure and the pags clean. There is a very very light pencilled ownership signature on the ffep, which may have been erased. The best I can tell, it is perhaps Hon. Bodye, Hartford CT . There is a 48 page Appendix, plus 8 pages of ads for the publisher in the back. This as nice a copy of the first edition as I have seen, quite scarce.; Small 8vo 7" - 8" tall; 406, 58 appendix, 8 ads pages
