Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written By Herself
By Harriet A. Jacobs. Edited and with an introduction by Jean Fagan Yellin. ISBN 0-674-00271-7. Softcover with 336 pages.
This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative now completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in American history. John S. Jacob’s short slave narrative, “A True Tale of Slavery,” published in London in 1861, adds a brother’s perspective to Harriet Jacobs’s own autobiography.
