If you google --plantation sketches campbell - scroll down a bit and you will see "digitalcollections. Org" - they have the full book posted. Fishing, orphans, flirtations, watermelons, southern Valentine, the gospel, dixieland, "the march of intellect" - kids with their school books, breaking home ties and several more.
There is also one with a kid in a tree and a white man with a whip coming up! All of my books are over 100 years old and have 100+ years of wear.
This is hardcover with a paper picture laid over. Text block and covers secure.Back board looks good with just 2 rather small scratches - but very clean for its age. Pages are generally all very clean with jus a few minor spots.
#'s written on first picture [at the bottom - see 2nd picture]. There are some rips, most under 1.5, in the gutter area - all have been taped with doc.
There is a 2" rip and a 3" rip as well. One page with a very small pin-hole [shown with orange paper -picture #10]. Library blindstamp to the title page and only 1 plate [see last picture - it is very hard to see it -piece of paper next to it].No other library markings - spine, endpapers, or otherwise - I promise! Overall -very good for it's age. A NICE ONE FOR YOU COLLECTION! Please Add me to your Favorites list. AND check back now and then to see what's new!

This book is very old and. May have accumulated bad smells along the way [musty basement/ mildew/ smoke].
Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn't work like it use to. So the old book smell doesn't bother me. As far as I can tell -this book smells fine.
