Brackett, Jeffrey R. The Negro in Maryland: A Study of the Institution of Slavery. Baltimore: 1889. 1st Edition, 268p. 

An interesting and very early scholarly work on slavery in the Chesapeake Bay area. In an unusually analytical book for its time, Brackett studies the lives of slaves, laws and practices relating to manumission, and the lives of free people of color in Maryland.

Part of the Johns Hopkins Studies in Historical & Political Science series.

Hinge starting with a 2″ crack in the front hinge; light chipping at top of spine, and on end pages, else very good. An uncommon title.
