First annual report of the Society for Promoting Manual Labor in literary institutions. Theodore D. Weld.

First annual report of the Society for Promoting Manual Labor in literary institutions

New York: S. W. Benedict & Co, 1833. First edition, 8vo, pp. 120; removed from binding; ex-library, with taped call number on title page, light spotting, last leaf chipped at gutter, affecting last few lines of text, good and sound. The Society for Promoting Manual Labor was established by the philanthropists Lewis and Arthur Tappan exclusively for the purpose of funding Weld's work. Weld travelled over 4,500 miles in the course of compiling his report. He would later merge his theories on education with his advocacy for abolition, and lead a body of students from Oneida to Lane Theological, and from there ultimately to Oberlin University, under the condition that Oberlin would admit Black students, making it one of the first in the country to do so.
