Offered are two pieces of vintage 19th century ephemera on the topic of 19th century Christian Missionary work with focus on the African and African-American Slave populations.

The first piece is a 12 page paper pamphlet written by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions that discusses the Mission philosophy and world-wide global plan to convert or evangelize Africans, Asians, and Native Americans. An interesting historical perspective. Printed in Boston, Massachusetts, by Perkins + Martin, 1838-- excellent condition.

Secondly offered is a small, early 19th century, hard cover book containing the memoirs of 5 different women--African Slave, Native American and Caucasian, their trials and tribulations and the effect of Christianity upon them. This tiny missionary book measures 3.25 inches wide x 5 inches long. While there is no publisher or date of publication, the memoirs focus upon women living in the first half of the 19th century. The 127 page book is in fine condition- tightly bound, no missing pages with age-related foxing to pages and some water staining.
