240 : Building your Library # 10

Although copies of the five-volume set The Black Abolitionist Papers are in British university libraries, the five volumes of this American book (University of North Carolina Press, 1985) are available on US and Canadian websites. Volume 1 is The British Isles, 1830-1865 and costs £33 to £40 + postage. Nearly 600 pages, quoting from letters and newspaper reports, with addresses providing research opportunities. The massive documentation available on Frederick Douglass led to his exclusion from the project. The volumes on Canada and the USA do not have a British Isles focus.
