Deep green cloth with bright gilt titles and decoration. Some light corner and edge wear along with light, even interior aging. Book is close to near fine. Square and securely bound. Introduction by William Stanley Braithwaite. This copy is signed, perhaps uniquely, on the Dedication Page. The Dedication is to the Hon. Arthur P. Stone who was a Justice of the Third District Court in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The signature is followed by Jones' address in Boston. This may have been Justice Stone's copy. The major work in the book is the 13 page ode to Lincoln, which garnered much praise for Jones, an African-American poet. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 96 pages; Signed by Author
