New York: Friendship Press, (1936). First edition. 8vo, 208pp; pictorial wrappers. Light chipping to lower edge of wrappers; covers a bit softened and with a touch of soil, still quite an attractive copy. Item #205393
Uncommon wrappered issue of the first printing -- it was reprinted in 1951 in an edition often mis-attributed as the first -- of this historical study by a sympathetic white author affiliated with the Methodist church. Notable especially for its splendid cover design by Aaron Douglas.
