About This Item

Near fine in a very good dustjacket (slight toning and soiling to endpapers, one small spot on front cover, dj has 1 rounded chip at top edge of front cover, some toning to spine and folds, slit near the spine, price-clipped) Despite the relatively minor flaws, this is an extremely attractive copy of a hard to find book, especially with such a warm and friendly inscription - and especially in the dustjacket.. First printing. The very uncommon first edition of this classic anthology - among the contributors are many writers of the Harlem Renaissance: Dunbar, Langston Hughes, Feldon Johnson, Cullen, Jessie Fauset, Claude McKay and others, as well as some traditional poems. Illustrated with drawings by Henrietta Bruce Sharon. Arranged topically. Included are biographies of the poets, and an index of first lines. This copy has been INSCRIBED by Bontemps with the comment "I'm happy to have this little collection find its' way into your excellent library."

About Bookfever.com, IOBA

This is our 28th year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
