First edition hardback book by William Wells Brown (1814? - 1884) is titled The American Fugitive in Europe: Sketches of Places and People Abroad. With a Memoir of the Author. It was published in 1855 by John P Jewett and Company of Boston in 1855. This is an ex-library copy with the usual markings. Rear hinge is sound; front hinge is weakening. Some loss to top and base of spine. "During my sojourn abroad I found it advantageous to my purse to publish a book of travels, which I did under the title of 'Three Years in Europe, or Places I have seen and People I have met.' The work was reviewed by the ablest journals in Great Britain, and from their favorable criticisms I have been induced to offer it to the American public, with a dozen or more additional chapters."
