Revolution the Only Remedy for Slavery, Anonymous [Stephen Symonds Foster]

New York: American Anti-Slavery Society, ca. 1855. Anti-Slavery Tract, No. 7. 20pp. Original wrappers, string tied at spine, without covers (as issued). Heavily foxed, owner's name in pencil to first page. The Anti-slavery Tracts were a series of essays and publications made by the American Anti-Slavery Society. This, the seventh, was the only one of the 24 Tracts issued by the Anti-Slavery Society in the mid 1850s to be written anonymously, perhaps because of its incendiary title. The author was Stephen Symonds Foster, a radical American abolitionist known for provoking crowds with his zero-tolerance stance on the issue of slavery. In this tract, Foster was not actually advocating violent revolution by slaves against their masters – Foster was instead speaking of a figurative “revolution” to “renovate…the moral sentiments of the country” against the ingrained institution of slavery.
