First Edition

[African American] The Negro Race in America. Edinburgh Review, 1864. First Edition. Rebound in lavender wrappers. Original 39 page article with 5 headings, extracted from the Edinburgh Review of January 1864. Octavo. An intricate look in 1860's into the transition from slavery to emancipation, to reintegration in Western society. Topics covered within follow the "character and probable destiny of the negroes, quite apart from the merits and demerits of the classes or parties brought by parties whose strifes they have been brought into by their present position". The author surfaces critical notions on the Black experience, more specifically chartering the detrimental effects of enslavement and the difficulties of reintegration. An important text, in very good condition.
