Presentation Copy] Black Mammy: A Song of the Sunny South and Other Poems
Bristol and Knabe, Cheyenne, Wyoming 1886 - Original dark brown cloth, beveled boards with exquisite gilt stamped cover, black stamped border designs, gilt spine. Stated "Second Illustrated Edition." INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR ON FRONT PASTE-DOWN: "To Dr. J.S. Wintermute/ With the compliments of/ Will. L. Visscher/ August 3, 94/ Tacoma, Wash." A very scarce book, obviously published in a time and place where little publishing was done. In additiion, the Northwest association (Tacoma, WA) adds to this unusual and desirable piece of Americana. This is an exceptional copy, the gilt on the cover still strong and bold. Corners only slightly worn, first free fly unevenly attached with very small tear. 4pp adv. at rear. Light blue decorated endpapers, both hinges intact.
