Boston: Lee and Shepard, 1882. First Edition. Hardcover. 1st edition, 1st binding with the title lettering in gilt (the 2nd binding is actually scarcer but few care) Fine in original green pictorial cloth and the printed dustjacket with chips at the corners and tiny specks of wear to the back panel, but very good, clean, integral, and unrepaired, an enduring exotic from the house of shock. Reference: Wright, 286. Fine / very good. Item #504
Early American dialect stories (published the year after Uncle Remus), some of them completely original, some of them new retellings, and among the latter a different account of the Tar Baby folk tale. Do I need to say that it’s rare in jacket? Ok, said.
