The third title in this volume is of some importance. It was written anonymously by Anthoney Benezet (1713-1784) who had come to Philadelphia in 1731. In 1755 he established a school for the instruction of females, and took an interest in the plight of the Negro in America. He also established a successful evening school for the slaves in Philadelphia. Like many of his later pamphlets on this subject, and those on temperance and social reform, this was probably published at his own expense. An earlier edition appeared in 1759. It is Benezet's first separate publication, preceded only by several periodical appearances. Sabin 8192 (citing all three titles); Evans 8309, 8364 & 8542. Item #53145
