About This Item

New York:: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1947. Bright, shiny, clean, square, tight, and unmarked. The Dust Jacket is NOT price clipped (5.95). INSCRIBED/SIGNED by Ida M. Cullen (Mrs. Countee Cullen). No remainder mark. Bound in the original black cloth. Sharp corners. From the Dust Jacket: "This is a collection of the best poems of the distinguished poet, Countee Cullen, selected by the author, shortly before his death [in 1946], from the entire range of his work. Included in this volume are several new and hitherto unpublished poems. Here are poems burning and bitter, poems deeply religious in feeling, poems concerned with death, and poems that tell the heavy burden a man had to carry, a burden that made him write: 'Yet do I marvel at this curious thing, To make a poet black and bid him sing!' But not all the poems are serious or tragic. Countee Cullen wrote with a lyrical beauty, he loved the sound off singing lines and enchanting words. He wrote poems of love, poems to love, and brilliant epitaphs." . INSCRIBED/SIGNED by the poet's wife. . Later printing (circa 1972?). Hard Cover. Very Good condition./VG Jacket (light edge wear). 8vo. x, 197pp. .

About About Books

About Books (Genny and Michael Winne, proprietors, formerly of Parsippany, New Jersey) has been selling rare and OP books since 1985. Besides book fairs and mail-order catalogues, long-time collectors and dealers will remember our lengthy For Sale ads in the Antiquarian Bookman and similar magazines. Our inventory of over 40,000 volumes is especially strong in the specialties listed, but contains fine books in a variety of other fields as well. Because most of our books are stored in protective boxes, rather than on shelves, they cannot be viewed as a whole. If you wish to visit us to examine specific titles, please provide 24 hours notice and we will make them available for your inspection. Phone calls to (702) 750-2722 are welcome, but please, only between the hours of 8am and 10pm (west coast time).
