About This Item

Rare. Hardcover. Black boards stamped in gold. 81 pages. Includes nine poems written after the 1964 edition was published. No publisher or city listed, but the front cover shows the elephant symbol of the Parti Démocratique de Guinée which published the much shorter first edition in paperback. Fine. Cover shows minor shelfwear, the most noticeable of which includes bumps to the spine and front cover. Interior is pristine.

The author was the first President of Guinea, serving from 1958 until his death in 1984. He was a principle voice of Panafricanism and encouraged independence movements throughout the continent. This rare volume is inscribed by the author: "A David Newson (sic) en toute amitié Ah. S. TOURE." David Newsom was an American diplomat. He served as the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs from 1969 to 1974, as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs from 1978 to 1981 and as Acting Secretary of State in the early Reagan administration.
