SAPPHIRA AND THE SLAVE GIRL.

New York: Knopf, 1940. First edition. Her last novel, the story of Sapphira Colbert, a bitter but privileged white woman, who becomes irrationally jealous of Nancy, a beautiful young enslaved woman. The book balances an atmospheric portrait of antebellum Virginia against an unblinking view of the lives of the people enslaved there (Wikipedia). Spine toned as usually seen otherwise near fine with barest wear; in price-clipped dust jacket slightly darkened on spine and rear panel with very minor wear at top of spine, small bookseller's ticket to top corner rear flap, and small piece of tape on verso.
