Macon: J.W. Burke Company, 1920. 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. This is a Near Fine copy of the First Edition, with "Compliments Chamber of Commerce Macon, Georgia" on the front cover. Softbound, with brown paper stapled covers. Clean text; 40 pages, with the one-page publisher advert in the rear. Mild creasing at the margins; else a Fine copy.. First Thus. Soft Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket. 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall. First Edition.

Dialect, Racism, Slavery, Humor
