Quality ebook 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. Now seen as a feature motion picture filmed in Louisiana, this historic, gripping, and well-written account is presented by the Quaint Press imprint of New Orleans, using active Contents, linked notes, proper ebook formatting, and all the original illustrations from the 1854 edition, plus three new ones. Most of all, this edition is carefully proofread against the original text, and is free from the printer artifacts, scanning errors, typos, and garbled formatting that are typical of digital reproductions of classic books. This painstaking process offers a proper and legible reading experience instead of trudging through a scanned library book dumped into an ebook bucket.
A book of this importance and interest deserves a complete and professional digital presentation. Also please look for the quality new paperback edition from Quaint Press (showing the same gray cover), and an accompanying, affordable hardcover edition with this cover, from Quid Pro Books. The print editions use full-size type and reasonable margins, unlike many publishers' versions which pack the 230-page book into 170 pages or so to save money and allow you a magnified reading experience. We are proud to produce ebook and print editions of this great work that use pleasing, legible, and modern presentations.
