About this Item

octavo. 245p. A fascinating book with an account of the period following the Rebellion and moving on to Uncle Isaac with a narrative chapter and a narrative poem using black dialect. It seems that this is a fond recall of the author's recent memory in the transition from slavery to independence. While there are elements that some might see as racism, the admiration he has for Uncle Isaac provides a snapshot of the South's dilemma before the beginning of the Twentieth Century. Bound in blue pictorial cloth depicting Uncle Isaac, lettering gilt and black,spine lettering gilt, Minor wear to corners and spine ends, covers soiled. Previous owner's embossed stamp and gift inscription in pencil. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 013894
