About This Item

Chapel Hill North Carolina: University of North Carolina Press, 1937. First Edition, Limited. . Hardcover. Fine/Very Good +. F/NF/1st ed., limited to 750. Written in 1937, this book dispels the long held theory that these ruins that are found in several areas along the Georgia coast were ruins of Spanish missions built before Oglethrope's arrival. In fact they proved to be structures built in the nineteenth century for cane sugar refining. The first edition of this book was limited to 750 copies and most are in public libraries across the United States. Book Condition is Fine; navy cloth over boards with gold lettering on spine. 275pp. First Edition. 275pp. Endpapers are maps showing location of the nineteenth century Sugar houses and some of the Spanish missions located down the Georgia coast. B&W illustrations, a couple of b&w photos, bibliography and index. Book is clean and tightly bound, sharp cornered, unmarked with no apparent wear. Dust Jacket Condition is Very Good+; clean matte jacket with price intact. Two very small open chips to jacket and a small closed tear ( no loss of paper)r on front of jacket. Front panel and spine appear just a smidge lighter than back panel. Covered with a removable mylar dust jacket. Signed on the verso of the preliminary page, across from title page, dated with a short inscription. Overall, an exceptional copy of this scarce important work on nineteeth century Georgia history.
