About this Item

Illustrated paper covered boards. 5 ½ by 7 ¼ inches. 216 pp. A song book and collection of hymns, notable perhaps for an early print appearance of Dixie (given as Dixie's Land) by Dan Emmett (and attributed to him) on pages 200-201. Originating in blackface minstrelsy in the 1850s, the song became the unofficial anthem of the Confederacy during the Civil War (Wikipedia). POOR/FAIR condition. Covers hanging on by threads, and may come detached (most likely the rear) with any further handling. Heavy darkening, fading, scuffing, creasing and other wear to the covers. Minor soiling. Paper apparently glued somewhat haphazardly to the boards, resulting in some wrinkles. Heavy bumping, scuffing and rounding along the extremities. Spine worn and deteriorated, with loss of leather and completely split hinges. Paper peeled away on some sections of the cover. Text block weak but holding. Scattered foxing and minor staining throughout. Stray pencil markings to a few pages throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 007663
