About this Item

Stapled pale grayish-green wraps with scene of African-Americans in cottonfield and titles in green and white. Not sure if the titles are supposed to look doubled or if that is a printing flaw. This copy has a scuff on the front right side and a good bit of wear on corners and edges. Some of the spine of the spine is worn away but the binding is still together and the book is square. See scan. Not dated but probably from around 1915, since a written notice about the book first appears in a Nashville newspaper in 1916. The back of the title page reads "Copyright Applied For." Since later editions seem to list a date, I'm presuming that this is the first printing. The National Baptist Publishing Board was an African-American owned publishing company in Nashville that by the early 1900's was the largest African-American publishing house in the US. There was a split between this Company owned by R. Boyd and another group in 1915. This book was one of Boyd's first publications after the split. WorldCat locates only three copies in libraries, none of which are this edition. Work p. 436.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 157 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 10818
