Anderson, M. T. THE ASTONISHING LIFE OF OCTAVIAN NOTHING, Traitor to the Nation, Volume II: The Pox Party. Cambridge, MA: Candlewick Press, 2006. Hardcover First Edition

First printing. National Book Award winner, NY Times Notable Book, Horn Book award winner and more. Although the two books in this series which follow the adventures of a young boy, an African slave who is at times the subject of a "scientific experiment", pampered and taught Latin and Greek at one point, brutalized at other times, have been classified as 'young adult,' they are incredibly well-written, emotionally complex, thoughtful and satisfying historical novels, ones which give a different picture of the American revolution, and ageless in their appeal. Very highly recommended. 351 pp plus an author's note. Very near fine in a like dustjacket. .ISBN # 9780763636791
