Gouldtown: A Very Remarkable Settlement of Ancient Date: Studies of some Sturdy Examples of the Simple Life, Together with Sketch
Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, 1913. Fine. First edition. Tall octavo. 237pp. Illustrated from photographs. Green cloth gilt. A little rubbing at the spine ends and some light foxing, a bright, just about fine copy of this study, generally considered to be one of the first town histories of an African-American community, with extensive genealogies of families, and written by black authors. The black settlers of Gouldtown, in Southern New Jersey, intermarried with the Finnish and Swedish immigrants that populated the surrounding area, resulting in Gouldtown's light-skinned African-American population. A very nice copy of a scarce book.
