191pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] Red paper covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine. Very good plus. The extremities are ever so slightly bumped. Yellowed pages. In a very good dust jacket. The spine is darkened. The panels have more subtle browning, particularly at the edges. The rear panel is very slightly soiled.
Advance copy with publisher's slip laid in. The works of Langston Hughes were incredibly important in shaping the artistic contributions of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s.
