Enslavement of African Americans Was Necessary!

1829-Dated, Imprint titled, "A Treatise on The Patriarchal, or Co-Operative System of Society As it Exists in Some Governments...," by Zaphaniah Kingsley, Florida, Very Fine.

This extremely rare, original 9" x 6.5" Slavery related Pamphlet 2nd edition, has plain brown paper self wraps that are separated with stitched binding and 16 pages, lightly toned and foxed throughout. Historically important, this early Florida essay on the "benefits" of Slavery, arguing the impracticality of Colonization (sending African Americans away to Africa or to an island community such as Haiti), and for treating Slaves with kindness (patriarchalism). Kingsley also claims that Enslavement of African Americans was necessary because the hot, humid Southern climate made labor "unfavorable" for "Whites." Most of Kingsley's ideas have obviously been totally refuted and have fallen out of favor in modern times, but it is interesting to glimpse political-economic literature of this type from that time in American history. An extremely rare and important original Black History and Slavery related original text.
