New York: Harper & Bros, 1863. "Fanny" Kemble (1809-1893) was well-known as a British stage actress when she married an heir to an American plantation in Georgia. Her journal has been an important source for the condition of slavery at that time. Evidently it circulated in manuscript among Abolitionists prior to its wartime trade publication. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition. Black pebbled cloth binding, heavily stamped on the front cover, and with gilt lettering on the spine. Clean text; 337 pages, with 10 pages of publisher's adverts in the rear. Corners are rubbed to a fray, and there is rubbing to the head and foot of the spine. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.

Price = 175.00 USD
