Stapled, tan, carboard wraps with sepia-toned titles and illustration of Charleston Harbor. The edges overlap and consequently have expected tattering. See scan. The interior is in excellent condtion. The binding is square and secure. This brief booklet records the street cries of African-American vendors on the Streets of Charleston SC at the turn of the 20th century. Good illustrations taken from life. The book is of some interest to those interested in African-American music. Both W. C. Handy and Eugene Odum wrote about early blues as being one line repeated over and over. The street cries seem related to that musical form. ; B&W Illustrations and Musical otation; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; Unpaginated pages
