Title: The Looking-Glass, Being A True Report and Narrative of the Life, Travels, and Labors of the Rev. Daniel H. Peterson, A Colored Clergyman, Embracing a period of time from the year 1812 to 1854, and including His Visit to Western Africa Author: Peterson, Daniel H. Place: New York Publisher: Wright, Printers Date: 1854 Description: 151 pp. Illustrated with 8 plates. 15x9 cm (6x3½") original cloth. First Edition. Born to slave parents near Baltimore who were owned by a relative of President John Tyler, Peterson himself escaped bondage and became a wandering Methodist preacher in Pennsylvania, traveling as a Christian missionary to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Gambia shortly before writing this book, published on his return to New York. A gilt-lettered subtitle on the front cover apparently summed up the author’s dream of a better future: “A Land of Rest, Peace and Unity / A Government of Wisdom and Equality.” One of the relatively few African-American autobiographies published before the Civil War. Lot Amendments Condition: Slight loss at spine ends, soiling and rubbing to covers; name and flower doodle in ink on front free endpaper, foxed; good. Item number: 234034
