Raleigh, NC: Wm. B. Smith & Co., 1865. First Edition, First Printing. Original Wrappers. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing of this RARE CONFEDERATE IMPRINT in its original printed wrappers, published during America's Civil War showing some toning to the wrappers and to the leaves as well as surprisingly light wear and a touch of folding to the wrappers and with minor scattered foxing to the pages. The first page of text shows a small note in ink to the left margin. The binding shows minimal wear. The wrappers are toned, and the leaves show some toning within as well as some scattered light foxing in the margins. Several pages of Raleigh, North Carolina advertisements at the rear, including on the inside and outside of the rear cover. One ad reads, "Negro Auction and Commission House, by W. F. Askew & Co., Fayetteville Street, Raleigh, N.C. / Safe and Comfortable Quarters, and charges for Board, &c., as moderate as the times will permit. ~ They have an experience of twenty years in the Trade, and flatter themselves that they thoroughly understand the business. / W. F. Askew & Co. / January 1st, 1865." The ad is all the more interesting since the Emancipation Proclamation freed all slaves as of Jan. 1st, 1863. William D. Herrington was a member of the Third North Carolina Cavalry from Pitt County, NC. While serving in the Confederate Army, Herrington published several stories and novellas in journals, and William B. Smith published Herrington's "The Captain's Bride" in Raleigh in 1864. William S. Powell described Herrington's stories as, "...well-written, thoroughly loyal in sentiment to the Confederate cause, and tell of overcoming great odds. The settings are clearly eastern North Carolina, and undoubtedly reflect the author's military experience there." Parrish & Willingham locate thirty copies. PARRISH & WILLINGHAM 6353.
