Measuring approximately 9 ¾ X 13 inches this Petersburg, Virginia slave merchant broadside is in delicate condition with some tattering of its thin southern pulp paper but remains entirely original. Emanating years ago from an attic clean out here in coastal Maine, we simply shrink wrapped it on acid free board and have maintained it in our collection as you see it. A nice size for display and restorible though it may be, we’d leave this piece as is except for proper mounting. The broadside was issued by Benjamin F. Childrey who, per his announcement, maintains an office at No. 30 Bollingdrook St., ONE DOOR BELOW MESS[ERS] BOISSEAU & HARRISON. The Petersburg merchant advises: NEGROES WANTED , that he has received an order to buy Fifty Likely YOUNG NEGROES For the State of Tennessee and that THE HIGHEST CASH PRICES The broadside bears a penciled date (1859) notation of unknown origin which appears to be supported by a partial date (59) still discernable along the tattered bottom edge. The F. Childrey and partial burg appearing at the right of this edge is research identifiable as B. F. CHILDERY of Petersburg, Va. Our Boisseau & Harrison photo insert is from the period and verifies their location in Petersburg, Va. as per the broadside. Our own rudimentary research placed B. F. Childery as a period Petersburg merchant of varying purpose from grocer to estate sale merchant with a number of partnerships over time. By the 1870 he appears to have become associated with city government at one point holding position as Petersburg’s Water Commissioner and later serving as Justice of the Mayor’s Court where he heard and handed down justice in all manner of cases from public intoxication to criminal. Our photos will do best with respect to condition and details of the content of this striking piece of just pre Civil War Americana. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques
