Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl : Written by Herself, with "A True Tale of Slavery" by John S. Jacobs, Paperback / softback Book

Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl : Written by Herself, with "A True Tale of Slavery" by John S. Jacobs Paperback / softback

Edited by Jean Fagan Yellin

Part of the The John Harvard Library series

Description

This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in all of American history.

John S. Jacobs's short slave narrative, A True Tale of Slavery, published in London in 1861, adds a brother's perspective to Harriet A.

Jacobs's autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John Jacobs presents further historical information about family life so well described already by his sister.

Once more, Jean Fagan Yellin, who discovered this long-lost document, supplies annotation and authentication. This is the standard edition of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, reissued here in the John Harvard Library and updated with a new bibliography.
