About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Slavery Times in Kentucky by COLEMAN, J. Winston, Jr..


Small 4to. Tan cloth with brown lettering and pictorial stamping. xiv, 351pp. Very good. Spine slightly darkened. Tight, clean, handsome first edition of this important volume -- and with a unique autograph addition: Tipped to the front flyleaf is an Autograph Note Signed from Coleman, heavy stock 5½" X 3¼" postal card, Winburn Farm, Lexington, KY, 1955 January 19. Addressed to Ralph G. Newman (1912-98), founder of Chicago's noted Abraham Lincoln Book Shop. Very good. Declines invitation to an Abraham Lincoln birthday party: "Sorry we can't come to your party for 'an old friend,' on Feb. 12th," and signs himself "'Squire' Coleman." To display the verso of this picture postcard, a small 4" X 3" "window" was neatly created in this flyleaf, so that on the flyleaf verso (facing the half-title page) one can read the printed poem "The Squire," written by fellow Kentucky historian William H. Townsend and dedicated to his friend Coleman. This two stanza tribute reads: "If one would know the real Bluegrass charm, / He first must stop at Winburn Farm / And meet the Squire. / Nobody here is ever bored, / Gray shadows dance on Morgan's sword / Above the fire. / The Squire leans back among his books, / Pioneers emerge from leafy nooks / With powder horn. / 'Let's talk of Boone and Clark', he'll say, / And sip our corn'." A scarce piece, likely printed in a small quantity by Townsend as a gift to Coleman. Coleman (1898-1983) was a prolific Kentucky author and historian whose many books and dozens of pamphlets include "Masonry in the Bluegrass" (1933) and "A Bibliography of Kentucky History" (1949).
