Light blue covers with gilt titles. Book is square and binding is secure. Almost no exterior wear, some light interior age toning. Jacket has light wear, a sunned spine and light toning otherwise. Overall this is a quite attractive copy of a book rarely found in a dustjacket. A poem titled "Others" is laid in. At the bottom in type it reads, "My Creed, Edna Jane Hunter." Signed and inscribed on the ffep to Professor Stanley H. Chapman who taught at Bucknell and CCNY. ; B&W Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 211 pages; Signed and inscribed on the ffep to Professor Stanley H. Chapman who taught at Bucknell and CCNY. I'm not sure of the publishing history here. The back of the title page states Second Printing, but there is also an attributuion to Elli Kani Publishing (of Cleveland) who published the first edition. The bottom of the spine of the dustjacket reads, "Parthenon Press" which is located in Nashville. My suspicion is that Parthenon simply added "Second Printing" to copies of the first. The book is a sociological study of African-Americans. This is a very attractive copy, signed with an interesting association. Blockson 10451.Sold FABA 4.20.18 Tom Congalton ; Signed by Author.

Book Description West Virginia University Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. Virtually unknown outside of her adopted hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, Jane Edna Harris Hunter was one of the most influential African American social activists of the early-to mid-twentieth century. In her autobiography A Nickel and a Prayer, Hunter presents an enlightening two-part narrative that recollects her formative years in post-Civil War South and her activist years in Cleveland. First published in 1940, Hunter's autobiography recalls a childhood filled with the pleasures and pains of family life on the former plantation where her ancestors had toiled, adventures and achievements in schools for African American children, tests and trials during her brief marriage, and recognition and respect while completing nursing training and law school. When sharing the story of her life as an activist, Hunter describes the immense obstacles she overcame while developing an interracial coalition to support the Phillis Wheatley Association and nurturing its growth from a rented home that provided accommodation for twenty-two women to a nine-story building that featured one hundred and thirty-five rooms.This new and annotated edition of A Nickel and a Prayer includes the final chapter, "Fireside Musings," that Hunter added to the second, limited printing of her autobiography and an introduction that lauds her as a multifaceted social activist who not only engaged in racial uplift work, but impacted African American cultural production, increased higher education opportunities for women, and invigorated African American philanthropy. This important text restores Jane Edna Harris Hunter to her rightful place among prominent African American race leaders of the twentieth century. Seller Inventory # APC9781933202648
