About this Item

First edition. Chocolate brown cloth letetred in gilt. 280 pp. Presumed first state with frontispiece portrait of the author present. THIS COPY LACKING THE TITLE PAGE but otherwise correct in all regards for first edition. A tight example, rear hinge starting and with a blue pencil notation on the contents page; neat old ownership signature front free endpaper. Some spotting to the spine but all gilt clear and bright. An important African American title, a work of fiction based on true stories; the author's stated aim was not to present an overly harsh portrayal of slave life in the South in the hopes that the aims of racial advancement in the late Reconstruction period would be more easily attained.
