The Garies and their friends by Frank J Webb ( Book )
33 editions published between 1857 and 2010 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this novel set in antebellum America, the Garies -- a white southerner, his mulatto slave-turned-wife, and their two children-have moved to Philadelphia from Georgia. Originally published in London in 1857, and never before available in paperback, The Gages and Their Friends was the second novel published by an African American and the first to chronicle the experience of free blacks in the pre-Civil War northeast. The novel anticipates themes that were to become important in later African American fiction, including miscegenation and passing, and tells the story of the Garies and their friends, the Ellises, a highly respectable and industrious coloured family
