Quality hardcover edition of this compelling and influential memoir, an inside account of life as a slave in rural Louisiana, written by a Northern free man who was kidnapped in Washington, D.C., and sold into brutal slavery. Features additional interesting and rare images relating to Solomon Northup, such as the actual "manifest of slaves" from the ship that brought him in chains to New Orleans. Proper formatting, unlike any new hardcover edition available today, features legible font, complete text, and modern presentation. Note that other new hardbacks are about half the pages as they make font tiny and use non-standard paragraph structure; they are poor scans, while this edition is painstakingly proofread against the original and presented with pride. This edition is the only one that is practical and authentic for new readers, classrooms, library collections, and gifting. Also seen as a 2013 feature motion picture filmed in New Orleans, rural Louisiana and environs, this historic, gripping, and well-written account is presented by Quid Pro Books using all the original illustrations from the 1853 edition (plus the added images unlike any other version). A book of this importance and interest deserves a complete, library-ready, and professional presentation. Please compare the typeface and proofreading of other print editions before ordering.
