Book has rubbing to the edges and corners of the boards. Some surface wear. (See scan.) Spine has some wear at extremities and is lightly sunned. There has also been some minor damage on the spine causing a light curl resulting in some wavines on interior pages. This has not caused any problem with the binding. 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, Kelly Miller, 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. ; Color Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 446 pages
