“The long awaited story of the Negro in New York.”
A spectacular, virtually mint copy of the First American edition, in an unclipped dust jacket that has fainty creased along the spine but with no separation. The decorated cloth boards are pristine. The binding is crisp. There is a vintage bookplate on the front free endpaper. The contents are otherwise fine. Rare thus.
