    Joel Chandler Harris. The Shadow Between His Shoulder-Blades. Boston: Small, Maynard and Company Publishers, [1909]. First edition. Twelvemo. 132 pages. Four plates inserted throughout. Publisher's full gray cloth, front board decoratively stamped in blue and black, spine stamped in blue, in the very rare original dust jacket. Some wear to jacket, several tears (a few of which are creased), minor rubbing to binding, bookplate of the University of Oglethorpe on the front pastedown. Overall, near fine. Housed in cloth protective dust jacket and green morocco pull-off case (spotted). From the collection of Donald Kaufmann.

    BAL doesn't mention the jacket; it is probable that Blanck never saw a copy in the rare dust jacket.
