OLD PLANTATION DAYS by Archibald Rutledge. Illustrated.
Cumberland MD: The Eddy Press. Although undated, this book is
known by the inscription date to have been published prior to
December, 1913. Privately printed as a gift to friends and
associates, this is the earliest edition of this title and
is now quite rare. Only 100 to 250 (maximum) copies of this
gift volume were printed. The book is signed by Mr. Rutledge
on the first blank page preceding the title page. This book
was presented to the Seller's grandfather, Victor M. Birely,
while he was a student of Mr. Rutledge at Mercersburg Academy
in Pennsylvania where the author taught English for 37 years.
Victor inscribed his name, address, date of receiving the book,
and numbered it "24" on the inside front cover. The inscription
reads: "V. M. Birely, Mercersburg Academy, Mercersburg, Pa.,
Dec. 13, 1913." In hardback with no dust jacket as issued,
this volume of 18 classic Nature and Americana short stories
(5 stories of which are not seen in later trade editions), the
book measures 5.75" x 8.25" and contains 160 pages.

OLD PLANTATION DAYS is in Very Good/Fine condition, with
no torn or loose pages. A former internal separation between
the front cover and first end page has been professionally
repaired as may be seen in above photos. Other than the
author's autograph and the original owner's 1913 inscription,
there is neither writing nor marks, discoloration, watermarks
or foxing speckles on any of the pages. There is minor surface-
only rubbing to the front edge of spine. The page edges are
only minimally age-toned and worn, while the text pages remain
bright. The text and all illustrations are clearly visible
throughout.
