On the 3rd October Dominic Winter Book Auctions will be auctioning a rare and possibly unique poetry manuscript by the noted escaped slave and abolitionist lecturer and novelist William Wells Brown. The one-page thirty-two-line poem entitled 'Fling Out The Anti-Slavery Flag' was recently discovered in a leather-bound Victorian scrap album eemingly kept by a lady or gentleman from south-west England with Quaker or Baptist convictions. The anonymous vendor spotted the poem by chance recently while flicking through one of his many scrap books and sent it in to Dominic Winter's Autographs department for checking. At the time neither the owner or the auctioneers thought it would turn out to be genuine.
