Full calf leather. 120, 108, 40 pp. A first person account of the travels and preachings of Eleazer Sherman. While primarily centered around his travels in New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Sherman also recounts his trip to Darien, Georgia. Upon his arrival he contends it is a wicked and blasphemous city with little religion. Sherman also provides his impressions of the slaves and slavery in Georgia, recounting the brutal whipping of one slave and the conversation with another older slave, who briefly mentions his former life in England.

Head of the spine pulled with minor splitting to the leather. Interior solid with the second blank endpaper missing its upper half. Some pencil scribbles to the endpapers and title page, with a few scattered scribbles in the first part of the text. Minor scattered soiling throughout, with moderate foxing to the paper and a few minor stains. Last several pages of the book with a heavy dampstain in the gutter, affecting some of the text.
