About this Item

No statement of first edition, so this may be a later printing in the year of the first. The only date is 1929 on title page and copyright page. Signed. VG- to VG/G+. Black cloth over boards with somewhat faded gilt titles on spine and front. Book is square and binding is secure. There is general overall wear and aging with some light, even interior toning. A solid copy. The dust jacket is chipped at the top of the spine with about 3/4" loss and wear to edges. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 267 pages; Moton succeeded his friend, Booker T. Washington, as President of Tuskegee Institute. Signed on the ffep to Rev. William Byrd Lee an Episcopal Rector in various Virginia Parishes who was well-known for his work with African-Americans in the area. Interestingly one of his obituaries reads, "Among the out-of-county clergymen present was the venerable Rev. Giles B. Cook, of Mathews, last survivor of General Robert E. Lee's staff. Negro spirituals were sung at the grave by a group of members of the negro churches of the county, a fitting tribute to one of their staunchest friends." Interesting association with Moton. With the dustjacket and signature, this book is quite uncommon. Laid in is an editorial from the Montgomery, AL Advertiser. Blockson 4336.; Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 11251
