About this Item

Illustrated paper covers, stapled binding. Introduction by Sara Beaumont Kennedy. Very Good+ condition. Might grade higher but let's be conservative here. The publishing date for this book is shown in some sources as 1920. Nice copy of this rare sec ond volume of the collected works of Alley's famous 'Hambone', which ran in the Memphis Commercial Appeal. Misunderstood by most people, especially today, Hambone used satire to attack the entrenched racism of the South in the early 20th Century, th e KKK in particular. Quite a rare book in any form, but especially this nice. Textblock is very tight and clean, no damage. Perhaps themildest toning. Covers are evenly toned, as usual with this book. Small chip at base of spine, but covers remain f irmly attached. Small scuff upper right corner of front cover. Small chip to top edge of rear cover. Rear cover has outline of slightly darker toning, and at edges. None of these are egregious. Old pencil price on ffep, could be easily erased. Price d under the market for quick sale.
