  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Bobbs-Merrill, 1933. 1st trade edition, 2nd impression.

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.

PETERKIN, Julia and Doris Ulmann

  • Edition: 1st Edition
  • Quantity available: 1
New York, Jonathan Cape [1933]., 1933. First English edition (from American sheets). 8vo. 70 full page b/w plates from photographs by Doris Ulmann. Text by Julia Peterkin. Original terra-cotta cloth stamped in black on the spine. Original dust jacket (unclipped; spine faded). Very good. 251 pages. No signature or bookplates. Pulitzer-Prize winner. Ulmann's photographs in the Pictorialist/Modernist mode capture the lives of former slaves and their progeny on a South Carolina plantation along the Gullah coast. A highly romantic view of the Southern Black American that, though now dated and politically incorrect, still magically evokes a bygone world. Cf. Roth, Book of 101 Books, p. 78-79.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good.

New York: Robert O. Ballou, 1933. First Edition. 8vo; 251pp, with 75 photographs on double-sided plates, including frontispiece; original blue cloth, gilt spine, edges faded about 1/8 in, endpapers a bit aged toned, jacket chipped along all edges rubbed ("E" in Peterkin missing on spine) with creases on both front panel, very good in used jacket.

She was a sympathetic and outstanding commentator of the lives of this vanishing black culture. Doris Ulmann (1882-1934) was a well-respected photographer of the period who specialized in portraying the people of the "Southern Highlands" Appalachia and the coastal blacks Peterkin wrote about. Ulman's photographs ... Read more

The additional plate is signed by Ulmann and has edge chips and tears caused by the plate sticking out from the book, since it was not bound in. No soiling to the rough edge textblock (top edge gilt).
