BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY

The notes provide a comprehensive listing of the source materials used in this book. What follows is a selective guide to the literature on two topics: abolitionism and republicanism.


ABOLITIONISM

The primary sources I examined fall into a number of general categories. The key manuscript collections used in this book were: the Lydia Maria Child Papers, Manuscripts and Archives Division, New York Public Library, New York, N.Y.; the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society Papers, New York Historical Society, New York, N.Y.; the Gerrit Smith Papers, New York Public Library, New York, N.Y.; the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Papers, the Lucy Stone (Mrs. Henry B. Blackwell) Papers, the Lewis Tappan Papers, the Theodore D. Weld Papers, and the Elizur Wright Papers, all in the Manuscript Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

The major newspapers used in this book were the Emancipator (also entitled the Emancipator and Free American) ( New York and Boston, 1833- 1850), the Liberator ( Boston, 1831- 1865), and the National Anti-Slavery Standard ( New York, 1840- 1870). Key periodicals included: the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Reporter ( New York), the Anti-Slavery Examiner ( New York), the Anti-Slavery Record ( New York), the Anti-Slavery Reporter ( New York), Douglass' Monthly ( Rochester, N.Y.), and the Quarterly Anti-Slavery Magazine ( New York).

The pamphlet literature of the abolition campaign provided one of the most important bodies of material for this study. The Library of Congress houses a particularly extensive collection of abolition publications that I used in my research. And the Oberlin College Library "Collection of Anti-Slavery Propaganda," available on microcard, provided another valuable resource. For an informative and wideranging guide to antislavery writings, see Dwight Lowell Dumond, ABibliography of Antislavery in America
