New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1902. Here is an interesting artifact of American racial "humor," written mainly in an African-American dialect. Frederick Henri Seymour (1850-1913) wrote several books under the pseudonym of an Irish Lord. This is a Very Good (Minus) copy of the First Edition. Rare; Worldcat shows only one holding. Denim cloth binding with black lettering on the spine and front cover. Clean text; basically unpaginated (or paginated randomly), the last page number is 457, which would be about 200 pages more than are here. Frontis cartoon of Uncle Eph; all pages with decorations; text and decorations are in brown ink. The book is in fragile condition. Covers are rubbed at the margins. Both gutters have cracked, and some pages seem loose, or about to become so. For this reason, Quercus must offer this as a Binding Copy, in need of repair or restoration. In an archival plastic protector.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good (Minus)/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.

Humor, American Racism
