Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave
By (author): Frederick Douglass
9780525563006 Paperback, Trade English General Trade BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Historical Mar 06, 2018
$16.00 CAD
Active 5.3 x 8 x 0.5 in 160 pages Vintage
A new Vintage Classics edition of the abolitionist leader’s classic autobiography, formerly an Anchor paperback.

This dramatic autobiography of the early life of an American slave was first published in 1845, when its young author had just achieved his freedom. Frederick Douglass’s childhood in Maryland was marked by tragedy, physical abuse, and deprivation; he had limited contact with his mother and no knowledge of his father (who might have been his owner), and he regularly endured brutal beatings. Yet despite his harrowing experiences, through determination and sheer force of character he was able to secretly acquire literacy and eventually escape to the North, where he became a forceful and dazzling proponent of abolition. In telling his personal story, Douglass gives eloquent expression to the principles that made him the first great African-American leader in the United States.

ENDURING CLASSIC: This is the preeminent American slave narrative. Douglass conveys the daily physical and spiritual brutalities he endured under slavery, how he learned to read and write, and how he escaped to freedom.

BLACK LIVES MATTER: Americans are paying more attention than ever to the lasting legacy of slavery and racism in our country.

BACKLIST SALES: Our 1963 Anchor edition has sold 138,000 and backlists steadily but modestly; moving it to Vintage Classics should give it a lift.

COMPETING EDITIONS: There are many editions out there, but it is a very big pie to capture a share of (see sales on p. 2).

VINTAGE CLASSICS COVER: We’ll give this a fresh new cover, in line with our striking Vintage Classics look.

FREDERICK DOUGLASS, an outspoken abolitionist, was born into slavery in 1818 and, after his escape in 1838, repeatedly risked his own freedom as an anti-slavery lecturer, writer, and publisher.
