375 pages with bibliography and index. Red cloth with gilt lettering on spine. The spine is splitting along its sides, trying to separate fromt the covers, but still intact. Hinges are in good shape, as is the rest of the book. If not for this problem, the book would be in fine condition. This study docuemnts an era of great change in America, from the Civil War through Reconstruction and into the Twentieth Century to World War I. The author attempts to give a complete picture of southern humor written between the Civil War and World War I, as it reflected on all aspects of southern life: politics, education, religion, economics, commerce and industry, and folklore.
