The Anti-Slavery Record

The Anti-Slavery Record  was an abolitionist series published for the American Anti-Slavery Society by R. G. Williams.  The monthly was published in New York and had a three year run from 1835 to 1837.  Issues of the Anti-Slavery Record were bought and read in huge numbers while in print.  With the intention of sharing anti-slavery sentiments with a broad audience, most issues included an illustration on the first page that depicted the evils of chattel slavery.
