[Slavery]. [Fine Bindings]. Trio of Mary Pike Books with Identical Bindings.
    [Mary Pike]. Mary Langdon (Pseudonym for Mary Pike). Ida May; a Story of Things Actual and Possible. First Edition. A tribute to the early abolitionists preceding the Civil War. Like Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author, Mary Hayden Green Pike, was a northerner setting her anti-slavery story in the deep South, involving a white family, kidnapping, and sale into slavery. 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.
