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.

From an institutional library, but with no markings as such save the call number. Howes F-9.
