Good Evenin'. A Real Native Southern Negro Melody. -- Music Supplement of the N. Y. American and Journal, Sunday, March 22

By Paul Lawrence Dunbar the Negro Poet and Will Marion Cook the Negro Composer

Last page printed in orange. Front cover illustrated in muted blue and orange colors (see photos). -- Newspaper Supplements of this era were printed on poor quality paper. A fragile item. Very scare in this nice condition. -- Thus, Overall:. "Paul Laurence Dunbar stands out as the first poet from the Negro race in the United States to show a combined mastery over poetic material and poetic technique, to reveal innate literary distinction in what he wrote, and to maintain a high level of performance. He was the first to rise to a height from which he could take a perspective view of his own race. He was the first to see objectively its humor, its superstitions, its short-comings; the first to feel sympathetically its heart-wounds, its yearnings, its aspirations, and to voice them all in a purely literary form."-americanpoetry.
