Farm & Fireside Chas. H. Smith (Bill Arp) 1891 1st RARE
The Farm and Fireside Sketches of Domestic Life in War and in Peace. Written for the Entertainment of the Good People at Home, and Dedicated Especially to Mothers and Children. By Chas H. Smith (Bill Arp) The Constitution Publishing Company, Atlanta, 1891. 6 by 9 inches,345 pages.Charles H. Smith (1826-1903) was a Georgia born humorist and politician. He adopted the pen name Bill Arp shortly after the South seceded from the union. He wrote satirical letters in the Georgia cracker dialect of his alter ego in support of the Confederacy. This volume has a number of short essays, most of which were likely newspaper columns. Some are in the voice of Arp and deal with the war or its aftermath - one is written to the Arp's Yankee counterpart Artemus Ward. In another essay, not in the Arp dialect, the narrator is telling children stories about runaway slaves, and most modern readers will find the language and attitudes expressed objectionable. The majority of the vignettes, however, are written with a gentler humor and deal with farm life family and memories of childhood. The book is illustrated with one page humorous line drawings.The cover has some wear, and the book is cracking open at the front and back hinges. The owner's name and an 1892 date is in the front. The pages are lightly toned with varying degrees of foxing. I found rather expensive modern reprints of the book for sale online, but no copies of this first edition.
