New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1918. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. Illustrated by E.W. Kemble. Owner's name on front fly, white spine lettering rubbed but readable, very good. Stories by a Kentucky-born, Virginia-resident white minister who made his name on stories about African-Americans, managing to piss off everyone, both white and black in the process, and with good reason.
