385p. + Plates (by Harry Fenn & J.C. Earl) + Publisher's advertisement. Top edge gold. 12mo. Original publisher's red cloth binding, lettered in gold, and decorated on the front board with a large flowering Marijuana plant, emboldened with buds in silver. Binding shows wear, but is still fascinating. This romantic tale of Life on the Kentucky Hemp fields, avoids most of the drug associations later attached to marijuana. even as it discusses the intellectual climate in Kentucky around the turn of the century. This book is apparently the first to use cannabis as part of the cover design, and we know of no others before the 1960s. Wright III, 81. What a cool gift for someone with an interest in the subject. AMER 3 x2
