New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1906. One volume, unpaginated. Quarto. Original tan cloth, stamped in gilt and green. Light wear and soiling to cloth, corners lightly bumped. Contemporary blue pencil notation to front pastedown. Light soiling to first few leaves of text. Very good. Item #1841
A rare printer's dummy for this story of life in the old South. The pencil note on the pastedown reads, "16 illus. in colours. List", which we assume is a notation regarding the publication for sale. The text includes the title page, two colored plates, and scattered section titles, but is primarily comprised of a repeat of the first eight pages of the work. It is nevertheless quite a thick volume, presumably mimicking the actual size of the published work.
