Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Very Good


Stapled, large (4to), souvenir book with pictorial wraps featuring an exceptional B&W image of Robeson against a white background and white titles on a red banner at bottom. This copy has had the cover professionally reattached with archival materials -- the repair is not noticeable. Otherwise, this copy has only light wear and aging. I have graded it VG because of the repair but it looks VG+ at a minimum. This Souvenir book, which tells Robeson's life story and is filled with photographs, was produced for the Columbia Concerts, Inc. by Al Greenstone, who was well-known for compiling such volumes. There are also brief profiles of other people who were important in Robeson's career including Lawrence Brown, Eugene O'Neill, Carl Van Vechten, Alexander Woolcott and several others. This Souvenir book is quite scarce. WorldCat locates only two copies in libraries. ; B&W Photographs; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Unpaginated pages
