Hale, Edward Everett.  Man without a country. Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1916. 8vo (19.3 cm, 7.625"). [2], frontis., 60 pp.; 3 plts.
$30.00

A patriotic short story originally published in 1863, here presented in an attractive decorated cloth binding. American author and historian Edward Everett Hale (1822–1909) successfully roused support for the Union cause with this story that allegorically represents the issue of the American Civil War. The main character, after facing a trial for treason and expressing disappointment with his country, is exiled from the United States and must live at sea.
        Four black and white plates (including the frontispiece) done by F.T. Merrill accompany the text.
        Binding: Publisher's green cloth with white lettering to spine; front board decorated with a ship at sea stamped in white and gray, with white lettering and two white single-rule borders. => Signed by Amy Sacker.

Bound as above; extremities very lightly rubbed. Small, rubber-stamped monogram (CMcA? JCA?) on the front free endpaper. Minor gutter crack at p. 30. => Overall a wonderful copy.  (38127)   Please RESHELVE This.
