About this Item

8vo, pp. 90. Cloth backed boards, spine faded, front hinge tender, a very good copy of the author's scarce second book. Dickinson 2. (issued in an edition of only 1546 copies). Fine Clothes to the Jew, published midway through Hughes' college career, concentrated on Negro folk music. As Charles S. Johnson observed, the poems . were a departure . [and] marked a final, frank turning to the folk life of the Negro, striving to catch and give back to the world the strange music of the unlettered Negro " his Blues'"[Dickinson p. 47].
