American Anti-Slavery Almanac for 1842 published by S. W. Benedict. The almanac is printed on off white paper in black ink. Printed below the title is “CALCULATED FOR THE HORIZON AND MERIDIAN OF BOSTON, NEW YORK, / BALTIMORE, AND CHARLESTON: AND FOR USE IN / EVERY PART OF THE COUNTRY.” An engraved image is at center. The image portrays a Caucasian woman holding a book up in her left hand. A burst of light is behind her. Men, women and children are around her watching. A ship and a building being constructed are in the background. The interior pages feature astronomical information, calendars and weather forecasts. Printed on the back is an article titled Principles of Christian Fellowship and a short parable titled What has become of that Leather?
