Description
"NEGROES AND NEGRO SLAVERY"
Delusional white supremacist pamphlet, "Negros and Negro Slavery; The First, an Inferior Race - The Latter, its Normal Condition", by J.H. Van Evrie, MD (Baltimore: John D. Toy, Printer), 1853, 32pp. 8vo., the introductory chapter of a book by the same name which would be published in 1861. The essential argument presented by Van Evrie is that God created African and African-American people as a species distinct from whites, for the express purpose of labor. He goes on to argue that any attempt to eliminate slavery would also eliminate their purpose on earth, and plunge them into misery and strife. The pamphlet is bound in blue paper covers. The spine shows some splitting, and the covers are lightly soiled, else very good. An interesting if preposterous look into the pro-slavery mentality of some pre-Civil War Americans.
