A well respected and sought-after book

Henry Gardiner Adams (c.1811–1881) was an English druggist and chemist, known as an author and anthologist.  He wrote juvenile literature under the pseudonym Nemo.  Adams acted as secretary to the Mechanics Institute at Chatham. He was also involved in the early days of the Percy Society. Bankruptcy proceedings against his druggist and chemist business in Burgate Street, Canterbury were announced in 1872. He died at Gillingham, Kent on 1 May 1881.

In 1854 Adams edited the book God’s Image In Ebony by the British abolitionists Frederick Chesson and Wilson Armistead. In the introduction to God’s Image in Ebony, Adams argued that all human beings had a common origin, and hence that the enslavement of black people was immoral.
