This is the first edition of this chronicle of the first year of the Fisk Jubilee Singers and their tour to raise money for the college. First edition copies of this often reprinted book are relatively uncommon. This copy was rebacked at some point in the past and the original spine laid down. The covers are original and show a good bit of edge, corner and surface wear. The boards show at the corners and there is some mottling on the bottom third of the front and on the back. This copy is square and the binding secure. The illustrations are listed as photographs by Black, though they appear to be engravings, or reproductions of engravings, made from photographs. All the illustrations are present with tissue guards in place. This copy is G only but is still quite presentable. Please see scan. LAFISK ; B&W Portraits of Singers; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 219 pages
