Green patterned paper over boards with black titles. The spine, rather than lying flat, has a crease that makes it come to a poiny. I suspect that this is a printing flaw by a small town press.There is some toning on the spine and edges. Inside the endpapers have been replaced where they were partially (mostly) torn away and the hinges strengthened. There is on ly very light wear otherwise. The book is in the VG- to VG range. Nice copy of a rather hard to find book by this relatively obscure black writer. Ragland was a songwriter - poet, who published widely in newspapers and magazines. He wrote several books. One of his songs became the Alma Mater of the Hampton Institute. Essays indicate that he wrote on equal rights but more in the spirit of Booker T. Washingto than W. E. DuBois. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 90 pages
