Descripción

Original gray pictorial cloth gilt lettering. First edition (later printing) of the second Uncle Remus book, illustrated with frontispiece and 19 plates by Frederick Church. While working for the Atlanta Constitution in 1876, Harris "invented Uncle Remus" He published Uncle Remus pieces regularly in the Constitution, and they were extremely popular. In 1880 he collected them into his first book. Remus was a composite of three elderly slaves he had known, the stories themselves were his retellings of old African American tales. He rigorously researched his material, often collecting several versions of the same story until he felt he had the most authentic one. The stories Harris had heard originally were never meant to be told for the benefit of a white child; rather they were an integral part of the slave culture out of which they grew.
