The Shadow Between His Shoulder Blades
HARRIS, JOEL CHANDLER
Boston: Small, Maynard And Company, (1909). First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Very Good. In original illlustrated boards, all in shades of gray and black. Illustrations by George Harding. This has to be a very early appearance for Harding whose work first began to appear in The Saturday Evening Post in 1903. Untrimmed edges. The complete dust jacket mirrors the cover art, and though it is a bit rubbed it still presents extremely well and is a remarkable survivor, made possible, no doubt, by the quarter leather slip-case with chemise. Book-plate to the front paste-down. This volume has been cared for and it shows. A novel of reminiscence, relating of time served under the Confederate Officer Nathan Bedford Forrest. 132pp. The rear portion of the slip-case shows spotting and the leather spine face of the case has a few nicks but the book is superb. BAL 7162. Blanck makes no mention of a dust jacket.
