Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman

Auburn: W. J. Moses, Printer, 1869. 1st ed. Hardcover. frontis, 132p. Original reddish brown cloth. 18cm. Ends of backstrip and corner tips rubbed. Moderate foxing (confined almost entirely to endpapers and blanks at beginning and end, frontis (and its tissue guard), title-page, and pages 70-71). Spine lettering somewhat indistinct. Tubman was born a slave in Dorchester County, Maryland, circa 1820. After her escape from slavery in 1848 or 1849, Tubman returned to Maryland and the South 19 times, conducting over 300 slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. She served in the Civil War as a nurse and scout. Bradford wrote this book to provide financial support for Tubman who received no pension for her service in the Civil War until sometime in the 1890s. Always desirable and never common, this book has become quite difficult to find in recent years. Very Good. Item #88572
