First Printing Small 8vo: viii,147pp, with frontispiece and illustrations throughout by E. W. Kemble (who also illustrated the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Uncle Tom's Cabin, and the Uncle Remis stories). Publisher's French blue pictorial cloth, upper cover stamped in navy blue, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Scarce publisher's four-page advertising leaflet laid in. Unread; a brilliant, virtually pristine copy. Wright III, 1386. Posthumously published fictional sketches of "negro character," first published in the Atlantic Monthly under the pseudonym Olive A. Wadsworth. The title story paints a picture of plantation life Dana experienced growing up on her family's estate in Mastic, Long Island. Although a work of fiction set in Maryland, the character of Phil may of been named for a slave once jointly owned by the Floyds and a neighboring family. N. B.
