Content descriptions

General Note: "Entered, according to act of Congress, in the year 1845 by Frederick Douglass, in the clerk's office of the District Court of Massachusetts." --T.p. verso.
Summary, etc.: The premier publishing of Frederick Douglass' bestselling autobiography was in 1845, wherein he documents his life as a young slave learning to read, his subsequent escape from slavery, and how he established himself as a freeman under a false name. Douglass was forced to flee the country to evade recapture after the original pressing and only returned after buying his freedom. Two more autobiographies were published, in 1855 and 1881, where Douglass told of his life as an abolitionist, advisor to the president, and newspaper editor. --Publisher.
