Two years after Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin was published. [together with:] Sidney A. Story, Jr. (Pseudonym for Mary Pike). Caste: Story of Republican Equality. First edition. 540 pages. Lovely copy of a scarce novel. [and:] Agnes; a Novel. Boston: Phillips, Sampson, 1858, 1854, 1856. Later three-quarter morocco with gilt titles and six raised bands. Top edges gilt. Rubbing to extremities. Scattered foxing and staining throughout. Very good.
"Mary Hayden Pike (1824-1908), novelist and abolitionist, was born in Eastport, Maine and graduated from the Charlestown (MA) Female Seminary in 1843. Her writings reflect her abolitionist views. Her first novel, Ida May, is the story of a white child sold into slavery, Caste is a novel about racial discrimination, and her 1858 novel Agnes is about the American Indian." [cf The Feminist Companion to Literature in English].
