AFRICANER, OR MISSIONARY TRIALS.
2 AFRICANER, OR MISSIONARY TRIALS.
Philadelphia Presbyterian Board of Publication [n.d. but circa 1850] Softcover Good Softcover 
32mo. (3 3/4" x 5 7/8") 36pp. plus an inserted illustration, entitled "Are you Africaner?" Original black cloth-covered wrappers with blind stamped decorations and pale yellow endpapers.

Africaner was eventually converted to Christianity by the English missionary, Robert Moffat. Although this story was published in England around 1843 by John Snow, this is the first appearance in the U. S. Wrappers showing wear with a vertical scratch mark. Moderate foxing to text. A good copy.

4 ANTI-ENLISTMENT LEAGUE LEAFLETS.
Circa 1916 Very good 
Two small printed broadsheets (one approximately 5 1/2" x 7 3/4" and the other approximately 7 1/2" x 9 3/4") issued by the Anti-Enlistment League along with an envelope addressed to The Church Club of Philadelphia and with the League's printed return address and stated "aim" of the organization. The Anti-Enlistment League was organized in 1915 by Jessie Wallace Hughan and others to oppose America's potential entrance into World War I. These two leaflets were issued by the Committee on Christians of the League with the aim "to win Christians to record their refusal to accept any call which demands defense of country, flag, or honor, at the expense of human life, in the name of the Prince of Peace, Who made of one blood all nations of men. "" The organization folded in 1917 when the United States entered the war and the government seized the League's files and papers. Leaflets show crease marks from folding but otherwise clean and intact. Envelope somewhat soiled with additional markings.
