Judicial Cases concerning American Slavery and the Negro. [Five Volumes, Complete]
Complete in 5 Volumes. Facsimile edition of the first edition, first published between 1926 to 1937, and almost 3,000 pages. Noted scholar, author, lecturer, and book collector Charles L. Blockson writes: “Laws on slavery and black rights varied from state to state. Divided geographically, the five volume set of Judicial Cases gives the case histories of the in-court challenges to those laws. This ambitious series also makes it possible to trace the development of legal thought on the institution of slavery and the rights of blacks in America.”
