Frederick Douglass Lovely Signature







A cream stock calling card inscribed, dated, and signed by author Frederick Douglass (ca. 1818-1895) as "Very truly yours / Frederick Douglass / Washington D.C. / 1876". With overall light toning and minor mounting traces verso, else near fine. 3.5" x 2".







Frederick Douglass was born a slave in Maryland, but he escaped to New York and later relocated to the thriving free black community of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Douglass’s early education and natural eloquence enabled him to easily express his ideas about slavery, suffrage, and civil rights in both expository and oral form. Encouraged by seminal abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, Douglass wrote two autobiographies and also gave lectures. After the publication of his first work, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: an American Slave, the best-selling author was the most well-known free black man in America.







By the end of his life, Douglass accepted several political positions, serving as President of the Freedman’s Savings Bank, chargé d’affaires to the Dominican Republic, United States Marshal, and Recorder of Deeds for the District of Columbia.
