Hardcover 1st edition, Although this copy comes from a high school library and has a few stamps and stickers, it's in remarkably good shape. Clean and solid, and the dust jacket is covered in protective mylar. Much of the Canadian West was settled by farmers from the USA, hungry for new lands, especially with the recently complete railways. There was alway a movement of settlers across the US/Canadian border - United Empire Loyalists, runaway slaves along the underground railway, farmers seeking land, and later draft dodger. This is a study of immigration at the turn of the last century through the eyes of the federal civil service branch assigned to stimulate immigration, encourage publicity, and keep unwanted settlers - particularly the Negroes - out. 192 pages, indexed, some photographs

Chosen Exile - SIGNED By Daughter of Former Slave
Alabama
Rutledge Company
1980

First Edition
Hard Cover
Very Good
Good



Signed
Hardcover, 1st edition, limited edition, this being copy number 388 out of 1000 produced, SIGNED by both authors, but also signed by the daughter of one of the original 1110 slaves of Middleton Place. This daughter, Martha Demers, had lived on the plantation since 1920 and was still working there in August of 1980 when she signed this particular copy of the book. She was unaware at the time that her surname was French. A lovely clean fresh copy, only significant flaw is that the bottom edge of the back portion of the dust jacket is creased and has some loss. Otherwise a superior copy.
