About the Book

The powerful pamphlets that urged America to abolish slavery…

At the conclusion of the Civil War, the great U.S. Senator and anti-slavery activist Charles Sumner declared, “It is by ideas that we have conquered, more than by armies.”

And it was true. Emancipation was fought for and won because in the 1830's an idealistic vanguard of “abolitionists” set out to change how Americans thought about slavery and African-Americans.

The press was their major weapon in this battle of ideas, and abolitionists used every form of literature and every publishing format to awaken America to the facts and moral horror of slavery.

Now, Easton Press presents a vintage recreation of the renowned antebellum abolitionist pamphlet series: The American Anti-Slavery Almanacs – 1836-1847. Each historic pamphlet is meticulously reproduced from a pre-Civil War original and compiled in a leather-bound Deluxe Limited Edition strictly limited to 600 hand-numbered copies.

A time capsule from the fervent struggle over slavery.


Almanacs had long been among the most popular publications in America when the largest and most influential abolitionist group, The American Anti-Slavery Society, began in 1836 to publish an almanac focused on ending slavery.

Along with the weather predictions and horoscopes common to all almanacs, each issue of the American Anti-Slavery Almanac contained compelling, often controversial anti-slavery poems, stories, essays, sermons, and songs meant to both educate readers and shock them into taking action to end slavery.

Well aware of the power of images, the editors of the American Anti-Slavery Almanac added vivid illustrations which proved crucial to their campaign's success. As abolitionist Angelina Grimké explained, “Until the pictures of the slave's sufferings were drawn and held up to the public gaze, no Northerner had any idea of the cruelty of the system.”

The Deluxe Limited Edition The American Anti-Slavery Almanac – 1836-1847 recreates eleven historic anti-slavery publications just as they were originally seen in the decades before the Civil War, complete with all the original text, woodcut engravings, and bold typography and design.
