Beige cloth with black titles on front along with illustration of black farmer, alligator, reeds and other plants. Gilt titles on spine still readable. This copy has some age toning and minor soiling, especially around the edges. There is also light edge and corner wear along with a former owner's bookplate on the ffep. The book is square and the binding is secure. The book feels unread. This copy is one of the nicer ones that I have seen. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 171 pages; Solid copy of Jones collection of stories told mostly from the point of view of former slaves. These stories are written in what is essentially Gullah dialect and are harder to read than Harris's Uncle Remus. They also lack the narrative framework of Uncle Remus. Interesting and important collection of stories. A copy of Houghton-Mifflin's advertisement flyer for this book and another work, Irish Wonders, is laid in. This advertisement is relatively unusual.
