A collection of signed articles, poems, etc., by men and women prominent in the anti-slavery movement. Most of the signatures are in facsimile.
Edited "on behalf of the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society"--P. vi.
"Stereotyped by Thomas B. Smith, 216 William St., N.Y."--Title page verso.
"In commending this, the second volume of "The autographs for freedom," ... "The Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society" would congratulate themselves and the friends of freedom generally on the progress made ... by the cause to which the book is devoted"--Preface. 'Second volume' probably refers to an 1853 publication of the same title, also edited under the auspices of The Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society, but published by J.P. Jewett in Boston. The contents of each work are unique, although some of the authors are the same.
