A History of Southern Literature

NY and Washington: Neale Publishing Co., 1906. First edition. 8vo. 406 pp. Krick 79: "Organized under six chronological headings, one of them being the period of the Civil War. It is [the author's] premise that the writings of Southern authors 'are not merely disconnected efforts of isolated thinkers, but rather the natural, logical, and continuous productions of a people differing so materially in views and sentiments' from the North that a Civil War was necessary to prevent their becoming separate countries." Very good. Original gilt-stamped tan cloth (somewhat soiled, spine darkened), top edge gilt, others untrimmed. (#8193). Item #61267
