Cooke); edges, e.p's., interior show a bit of foxing; half-title (slightly loosened) shows short tear at gutter; still well-preserved in a damaged jacket. SCARCE CANADIAN EDITION OF THIS EXPLOITIVE, SICKENINGLY PSEUDO-INSPIRATIONAL TALE, IN THE FORM OF LETTERS (to "de ol' massa"), OF A FAITHFUL SOUTHERN SLAVE WHO GOT LOST WITH HIS MULE & SPENT THE ENTIRE 'RESTORATION PERIOD' TRYING TO FIND THE WAY HOME TO HIS BELOVED MASTER.
