Andover: Warren F. Draper, 1857.
First Edition. Pamphlet, 24 pp, in original sewn wrappers. Author's name and an old ink stamp on the front wrapper, else clean, with a mild vertical crease and light handling wear. Very good. Shedd (1820-1894) was a distinguished Presbyterian theologian and enthusiastic supporter of colonization. Asserting that "Africa has no past" and is "the continent of the future," he anticipates that with proper Christian guidance "a career similar to that of the British colonies in America, and similar to that of all the great colonizing movements of the past, awaits the Republic of Liberia."
