About This Item

Hardcover. First edition, octavo, pp. 200. Frontis view of Public Square, St. Augustine, and 6 other tissue-guarded plates. This copy presented by the author to Bishop Stephen Elliott, son of the famous naturalist, and the first bishop of the Protestant Episcopal church in Georgia. As bishop and head of the University of the South, Elliott wrote about, and was instrumental as a leader in, the movement taking the Episcopal Church in the South out of the national church in the run-up to the Civil War. Fairbanks, a native of Watertown, NY, settled in St. Augustine in 1842 but lived in Sewanee, TN, from 1860-1880. He became a Trustee of the University of the South in 1857. A very good presentation copy rebound in blue buckram with gilt-stamped spine at Wells Bindery, Waltham, Mass., in 1965. From an institutional library, but with no markings as such save the call number. Howes F-9.
