Volume One, Numbers One (May 1901) through Twelve (April 1902). The original binding was incomplete and in tatters, so this volume has a new binding that closely resembles the original; textured cloth over a burgundy leather spine with gilt spine titles and gilt and blind-stamped spine decorations, 14 by 17.5 cm; bound with wraps, most of the issues run 15 to 31 pp. with the Betsy Dowdy issue running a scant 7 pp. and the Cape Fear Blockade issue running 112 pp, for a total numbered page count of 342. The binding is fine, the contents are complete and near fine with only minor yellowing and what looks like a label that was peeled off the first page of the first issue. There is a tipped-in scrap of paper that precedes the first issue with the following in pencil: “Mrs. J.L. Sexton / Charlotte N.C.” (presumably the owner who originally had the volume bound). The North Carolina Booklet published monographs on North Carolina history and includes: Virginia Dare by Major Graham Davies; Colonial New Bern by Sara Beaumont Kennedy; The Stamp Act on the Cape Fear by Col. A.M. Waddell; The Historic Tea Party of Edenton by Richard Dillard, M.D; Betsy Dowdy’s Ride by Col. R.B. Creecy; The Hornet’s Nest by Hon. Heriot Clarkson; Greene’s Retreat by D.H. Hill; Monsieur Le Marquis De La Fayette by Major E.J. Hale; A North Carolina Naval Hero and His Daughter – Captain Johnston Blakely by Dr. K.P. Battle; Tales of the Cape Fear Blockade by James Sprunt (formerly Purser of the Confederate steamer Lilian); The Charge at Gettysburg by S.A. Ashe; and The Conditions that Led to the Ku Klux Klans by T.J. Jarvis. An amazing collection of early South Carolina history. First Edition.
