About this Item: University of Florida Press, Gainsville FL, 1976. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: None. Reprint.. VG+/0/reprint. A good solid copy printed for the Bicentennial Floridiana Facsimile Series. The Sketches of St. Augustine was originally published in 1848 by Rufus King Sewall who was the minister of the local Presbyterian Church. Sewall and a prominent merchant from St. Augustine decided to write a tourist promotion book about St. Augustine, with Sewall responsible for the writing. He managed to insult and offend the Minorcan population of the town--and was shortly off to a new start in Philadelphia with his family. Sewall little book also managed to slur the Hispanic population, but had little effect on Florida's religious or ethnic preceptions; shortly before the first publication of this book, Florida elected a Jewish Senator, and few years later, a Roman Catholic Senator. Book is 69 pages with a rather long General Editor's Preface, a rather long introduction with notes, and a 12 page index. Book is clean and has no wear to exterior; nice gold Bicentennal Embelm on front with gold lettering, gold lettering to spine. No marking or writing, but a little foxing around the edge of the front free endpaper(none to interior of book). Binding tight and solid, pages very lightly tanned, and a few b&w illustrations. Nice pocket size. History of St. Augustine Flori. Seller Inventory # 0021751
