A reprinting of the 1899 biography of Frederick Douglass by African-American writer Chesnutt. Composed only four years after the death of Douglass, the available written source material on Douglass' life was naturally sparse. The importance of this work, therefore, is probably more apparent to those concerned with Chesnutt's career as literary author than it is to those concerned with Douglass as political actor. Editor Pickens (English, Clark Atlanta U.) provides an introduction that places the biography in the context of Chesnutt's wider oeuvre. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
