1856 1st ed Twelve Years a Slave Solomon Northrup Slavery Kidnapping Memoir"I could not comprehend the justice of that law, or that religion, which upholds or recognizes the principle of slavery" -Solomon Northup, Twelve Years a Slave The harrowing memoir of Solomon Northup, "Twelve Years a Slave," follows his life as a free man in New York who is kidnapped and sold into slavery. He would not find freedom again for twelve years. Northup wrote the story a year after being rescued. He gave a first-person account of life as a slave in the south. This account became widely popular amongst the abolitionist movement and would go on to be portrayed in an Academy Award winning movie with the same title. This story was met with much opposition and was wildly controversial leading up to the Civil War, with its unabashed accounts of the criminality surrounding slave trade and the harsh living conditions of slaves. This first edition features a charming frontispiece portrait of Solomon Northup, as well as 6 woodcut engr ... Read more
