UNCLE REMUS: HIS SONGS AND SAYINGS, THE FOLK-LORE OF OLD PLANTATION
1881. HARRIS, Joel Chandler. UNCLE REMUS: HIS SONGS AND SAYINGS, THE FOLK-LORE OF THE OLD PLANTATION. With Illustrations By Fredrick S. Church and James H. Moser. NY: D. Appleton and Company, 1881 (copyright date is 1880). Small octavo (5 by 8 inches), hardcover brown cloth stamped in gilt and black on the spine and front cover; 231 pages plus advertisements. First Edition, first issue, with "presumptive" mis-spelled at the bottom of page 9 and without this title listed in the rear advertisements (first title listed is "Tale On The Practice Of Medicine"). [BAL 7100; brown binding]. The classic tales by Harris that launched the characters and stories of Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox. While copies of the first issue are not terribly uncommon- really nice copies are!! This is a terrific copy with gilt bright and very minor wear covers; all hinges are absolutely tight and uncracked with signatures all tight and unsprung. A perfect copy for the finicky collector! With the personal bookplate of Walter Gribben, who was a professor of astronomy and mathematics living in Brooklyn, NY, on the front pastedown [See "The Naturalist's Dictionary, 1898" for his listing]. $4,500.00.
