    Description

    [Pro-Slavery]. I. E. Lowery. Life on the Old Plantation in Ante-Bellum Days or a Story Based on Facts by Reverend I. E. Lowery. Columbia: Sate Co., 1911. First edition. Twelvemo. An important, much sought-after slave narrative. The author (a former slave) recollects his life events including slave weddings, slave funerals, log-rolling, corn-shucking and incidents of the mutual affection between master and slave, with a special emphasis on the unique relationship between the black "mammy" and the white children in her care. Publisher's cloth binding with gilt titles. Some very minor rubbing and bumping to extremities. Some foxing to preliminary pages. Very good.
