1 Locke, Alain The Negro and His Music
Washington The Associates in Negro Folk Education 1936 First Edition; First Printing Softcover Very Good- 
Stapled tan wraps with decoration and tan titles inside decoraton. Chipping on edges, front and rear. But still square with a secure binding. Overall light aging and some interior underlining in pencil. This work was written by the noted African-American scholar and Harlem Renaissance figure before the blues revival of the 1960's. Interesting view of black music while the Delta blues were still being sung by many of the originals. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 142 pages

2 Locke, Alain The Negro in Art
Washington DC Associates in Negro Folk Education 1940 Library Edition - First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ 
This book has been rebound in a red library binding with gilt titles on the spine. There are also gilt titles on the front but oddly the wrong title. The front reads: Art in Washington and its Afro-American Presence, 1940-1970. Followed by The Washington Project for the Arts 1984. The Washington Project for the Arts did publish a work with this title in 1984, but this is definitely the Alain Locke book and an original copy in this special binding. I'm guessing that this may have been used as a reference by the Washington Project for the Arts, or it was some sort of screw up. Anyway, Locke's work is relatively scarce and overall this copy is about NF except that the color frontispiece is missing. All other plates are present. This was a major undertaking by Locke, one of the leaders of the Harlem Renaissance. ; B&W Plates; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 224 pages

3 Locke, Alain (ed.) The New Negro: An Interpretation
New York Albert & Charles Boni 1927 Second Printing Hardcover Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Winold Reiss 
This stated 2nd Printing is a former library copy with stamps and a removed card pocket and due date slip. Call numbers on spine. The book has edge and corner rubbing to the boards. Some surface wear. (See scan.) Spine is sunned. However, this copy is square and the binding is secure with no tears or parting. This is a well-used but not abused copy of an important book. This work with its well-known illustrations was, in many ways, the announcement of the Harlem Renaissance. It includes contributions by Langston Hughes, Jean Toomer, Countee Cullen, Jessie Fauset, James Weldon Johnson, Charles S. Johnson, KellyMiller, Walter White, W. E. B. DuBois, Alain Locke and many others. Besides Reiss's portraits, there are also works by Aaron Douglas and Miguel Covarrubias as well as material from the Schomberg Collection and African sculpture. Nice usable copy of the 2nd printing that is much the same as the 1st. ; Ex-Library; Color Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 452 pages 
Price: 250.00 USD
