Frederick Douglass’ Narrative to be published

Here is notice that the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass will soon be published.  The notice includes the Preface, written by Garrison.  “The subject and the author of the Narrative is too  well known, too highly admired, and too deeply beloved by abolitionists to render any commendation of his highly reflective mirror of slavery necessary at our hands.  In addition to the interest contained in the incidents, and the pleasure to b e derived from the perusal of the many noble, manly and eloquent passages of the narrator, the value of the work is greatly enhanced by a Preface from the pen of Mr. Garrison…”  (Liberator, May 9, 1845)
