New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1940. Originally published in 1919, this is "perhaps the most popular pro-slavery text in United States' history." (Joe Lockard). Edwards (1855-1938) was well-known as a journalist, novelist, and editor. Written in dialect, the story of a faithful slave uninterested in freedom had a strong appeal to the America of Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan. Previously only regionally popular, this G&D reprint made it a national success. This is a Near Fine copy. Tan pebbled cloth binding with a green cloth spine; paper label on the front cover. Clean text; 28 pages; with map of the Wanderings of Eneas as the endpaper. Many black & white illustrations by Ernest Townsend. A very nice production. Top corners mildly bumped; else a Fine copy. The dustjacket is Very Good (Plus), with some edgewear and a bit of chipping at the head and foot of the spine. In an archival plastic protector. . Reprint Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good Plus. Illus. by Ernest Townsend. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Dust jacket present.
