About this Item

Dunbar wrote poems in both standard English and in "slave dialect"; the poems in this compilation are all in the latter style and all had been published previously, with exception of one. The best-known poem here, the title piece, is Dunbar?s paean to his mother and her spontaneous singing while doing household chores; it had first appeared in his self-published volume Major and minors, where it appeared in the "minors" section not because it was a minor piece but because it was in dialect. The volume is "illustrated with photographs by the Hampton Institute Camera Club," lovely and atmospheric; it has a binding designed and signed by Margaret Armstrong, and pale blue ornamental page borders by her as well. Binding: Publisher's brown cloth, front board with Armstrong's design of a trellis entwined with a red flowering vine and with two scrolls; the larger scroll has a tan field bearing the title in gold and the smaller one has a field of the binding's brown bearing the author's name in gold. Top edge gilt. 8vo (22.5 cm; 8.875").144 pp. (the blank leaf prior to the half-title is included in the page count). BAL 4948; Gullans & Espey, Checklist of Trade Bindings Designed by Margaret Armstrong, 73. Binding as above; as usual, without the d/j. Signs of something once having been pinned to front free endpaper, minor cracking in gutter between quires, else very good. Bookseller Inventory # 35379
