Printed & Manuscript African Americana
Sale #2663

One of our largest African Americana auctions to date includes important documentation of the abolition movement, including a rare pamphlet by David Ruggles; catalogues and posters for exhibits by leading Black artists; previously unseen Black Panther material; material on Black-owned businesses; and the first auction appearance of a majestic poster for opera singer Sissieretta Jones.

From the Civil War, we have a badge made for a private in the famous 54th Massachusetts who was wounded at the Battle of Fort Wagner.
