New York City New Republic 1926 First Edition; First Printing Softcover Good+ with no dust jacket Illustrated by J. J. Lankes 
This softcover book is in exceptional condition except for a missing corner on the front wrap (see scan) and a little loss at the top and bottom of the spine. It is slightly cocked, probably from having been read but is still securely bound and attractive. For a paperback that originally sold for a dollar, this copy has held up well. ; B&W Woodcuts; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 199 pages; Rossa B. Cooley was a white teacher/administrator who left a position at the Hampton Institute in 1901 to go South and take over the Penn School on St. Helena Island in South Carolina, a school originally established for freed slaves.
