About this Item

12mo. frontispiee, 313p. A sympathetic look at the plight of England's poor in the period Dickens frequently described from the heart of a minister whose own physical deformity helped him to have compassion for the unfortunate. His stories recalled village life of the poor. His chapter: the Negro Servant is an odd mixture both reiterating the fundamentalist legend about the curse of Ham as the origin of the Negroes. Nevertheless, the author condemns the evil of the slave trade where he notes that it was conducted on the high seas by nations whose flag identify them as Christian yet they deal in the horrendous vile traffic. The minister then welcomes the black servant as a believer and he embraces him as a brother. The book is a pretty book with all edges gilt, the original cloth shows a bit of wear to extremeties, with a beautiful blue pictorial panel inset depicting a young woman teaching a small child, within a gilt and black decorative border. Very nice. Bookseller Inventory # 016653
