Condition: See description

New York: Bobbs-Merrill, 1933. 1st trade edition, 2nd impression. The 70 pages of photographic studies of slaves by Doris Ulmann are stunning portrayals of the lives of African Americans in the South. This edition uses the original sheets printed by Ballou in 1933 (he is referenced on the verso of the half-title) with the Bobbs-Merrill title page. An unusual issue, the result of Ballou's bankruptcy and subsequent purchase by Bobbs-Merrill. 8vo, 251pp, 70pp photogravure illustrations. Publishers red cloth, title in black, with a damaged dust jacket with 2 rather large chips in it, one at the spine head, one at the lower front panel. Cloth with a couple of light marks, inner hinge papers are cracked but holding well and very clean internally.
