About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Dark Symphony by ADAMS, Elizabeth Laura.

Description:

Author's personal copy, with words "This copy belongs to: Elizabeth Laura Adams" handwritten in blue ink inside front cover. Sheed & Ward 1942 First edition, first printing (same date.) Also stamped "With our compliments The Blessed Martin Guild 141 East 65th St., N.Y.C." The book has many signs of a long, useful, treasured life. Small 8vo. Red clothboards with black printing; corners beginning to fray; some spotting and light tape marks. Textblock tight, square, unmarked, with light soiling on edges, title page taped for reinforcement on edges, Scotch-taped on inner spine for reinforcement; all repairs are old and likely have been made by the author-owner Adams. Unclipped dust jacket has been completely reworked (also a very old repair), with the front cover (and likely also parts of another front cover) having been glued to black paper to form a new dust jacket. The "new" dj was completely laminated with heavy-weight, sticky-backed plastic. It now has a rippled, plastic appearance that is not attractive, but does attest to its value, use, and meaning to the original owner/author of this book. Packaged with care and shipped in a box to arrive in best condition. Complete satisfaction guarantee; no sale is final until you are satisfied. Elizabeth Laura Adams has written her autobiography herein; a true account of her life as a young Negro girl and then young woman in an age of extreme prejudice. "She writes with great lucidity, and she tells of a world almost unknown.what goes on in the soul of the educated Negro.she does it by telling her own life story with a running commentary." Valuable reading for anyone who wants to better understand the problems and life of the black American in the early 1900's. Bookseller Inventory #
