Halifax, N.S. : Public Archives of Nova Scotia, 1971. First Edition. Pp (6),[7]-227,(1) including a portrait frontispiece. 8vo, blue cardcovers, blank spine. P.A.N.S. Bulletin No.11. Lieutenant John Clarkson, RN (b April 4, 1764, Wisbech, England - d. April 2, 1828, Woodbridge, Suffolk) was a prominent abolitionist and instrumental in the founding of Freetown, today Sierra Leone’s capital city, "John Clarkson's mission to America in 1791-1792 was a public-spirited and humanitarian enterprise designed to improve the lot of some of the negroes in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and to promote the colonization of Sierra Leone. His own account of that philanthropicventure, which is now being published for the first time, is an interesting and illuminating contribution to the history of those colonies in America and West Africa. Taken from the manuscript copy of his journal for 1791-1792, which is in the Public Archives of Nova Scotia, it appears in this volume in an annotated edition, with an introduction which, it is hoped, may be helpful in putting the undertaking in its setting and in its perspective, as well as in giving a sketch of the career of Clarkson." - from the Preface. Spine browned, name inked verso front cover, else very good. Signed without inscription by Fergusson on the title page. 30.00
