An original and a great one for any collector of Black Americana. The frontal page is torn off so we are missing the Publisher and date but an inscription on the next page dates this publication to 1902 or earlier. There is some staining and rips etc as would be expected of a book that is 100 plus years old. The binding is very loose with some detached pages but apart from very minor age spotting the pages are generally in very good condition...really needs a Bookbinder to restore it properly. The book is a small one measuring 5 1/ 8" by 3 3/4" with 142 pages plus cover.
