Copyright slip tipped in at the title. Light toning to the wrappers but a remarkably fresh copy in fine condition, or nearly so. Not in Blockson or Work. Scarce in this condition. "Smith's narrative relates not only his personal experiences, but also includes many anecdotes about other Kentucky slaves and masters. Many of his stories are humorous and pleasant, relating to sporting adventures and leisure activities. Others, however, relate instances of neglect, violence, and the mistreatment of slaves by their masters and other white authorities. Although Smith's narrative focuses primarily on slave family life on large plantations, it also highlights the interactions between whites and blacks, and the dynamics of those relationships."-OCLC 11401299.
