About this Item: National Sports Publishing Company, Chicago, 1927. Condition: Near Fine. First edition. Introductory articles by Ed. Smith, "Tad," Damon Runyan, and Mrs. Jack Johnson. A nice, very near fine copy lacking the dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed by Lucius C. Harper, editor of the African-American newspaper The Chicago Defender: "To Bettise [?] Stalling with the wish that you may enjoy reading this with the same pleasure & delight I experienced in helping Jack get it into book form. Sincerely, Lucius C. Harper. July 23, 1946." Johnson's tenure as the first African-American World Heavyweight Champion, and the larger-than-life nature of both his triumphs and travails, were a source of pride for African-Americans early in the 20th Century. An interesting inscription that sheds light on the genesis of the creation of the book. Seller Inventory # 87424
