Harris, Joel Chandler w/illus. by Oliver Herford  
Aaron in the Wildwoods

Publisher: Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1898 (1897)..
270pp. illus. decorated cloth 8vo: about Good [gilt cover titles are bright; spine strip is darkened; light shelf wear; hinges are cracked but firm; small oval personal library stamp on several pp.; couple of edge tears on pages; spot of foxing here and there; else a complete & tight copy] According to Bruce Bickley, writing in the New Georgia Encyclopedia, Joel Chandler Harris was born in 1845, not 1848 as noted in most biographic sources. His mentor, literary plantation owner Joseph Addison Turner, who published the newspaper The Countryman from his Turnwold Plantation near Eatonton, Georgia, managed to get Harris a deferment from service in the Confederate army, something of an historical question mark/sore point in Harris life. He is most famous for his Uncle Remus stories, which made him second only to his friend Mark Twain in popularity as an American writer at the turn of the 20th century. Harris died in 1908, a couple of years before Twain. This book of children's stories features 24 marvelous llustrations by the Anglo-American artist Oliver Herford (1863-1935).
