Stephen B. Weeks, Southern Quakers and Slavery: A Study in Institutional History, Baltimore, Md., The John Hopkins Press, 1896, First Edition. John Hopkins University Studies in Historical and Political Science, ed. Herbert B. Adams, Extra Volume XV. Dark green cloth hc with gold lettering, 8vo (23 cm), dark brown endpapers, [ii] xiv, 400 pp with charts, bibliography and index, fold-out tri-color map. Essential reference for Quaker history in the Southeast (USA), with charts of monthly meetings and preparatory (unofficial or indulged) meetings, the latter linked to locations and official meetings which guides researchers to genealogical clues not readily available elsewhere. Good/no DJ: edges and corners worn, hinges and gutters cracked, label shadow on front pastedown, light foxing/fingerprint-soiling, 2-inch taped tear on map border with no loss, no markings.
