About this Item

8vo 8" - 9" tall; (vii) 350 [2] pp. pages; Undated, but probably published circa 1860. Extremities worn, some fraying to head and tail of spine. Water stain to top half of frontispiece. Appears that the signatures may have been restitched (some evidence of glue at hinges). Bookplate on front pastedown. Purple cloth covers, elaborate blind stamped design on front and back covers with gilt stamps on front and spine. Frontispiece is of negroes dancing in costume - protected by tissue guard. Book is tight & solid. Two of the other titles listed on the title page (Nature and Human Nature [1856] & Wise Saws and Modern Instances [1855-58]) were published after the release of The Old Judge which was originally published in 1849. This book was considered one of his best looking at Nova Scotian life - "an Englishman is introduced to Nova Scotian life through the eyes of two narrators: the elderly Judge Sandford and his young nephew, the lawyer Mr. Barclay.".
