Original cloth with some edge and corner wear along with mild aging. Still square and securely bound with no tears or parting. Supplementing two census volumes issued before World War I - though nearly three times as long as that of 1915 - this is a treasure-trove of government-gathered information about Black Americans during the crucial period of postwar Northern “urbanization” that saw the cultural birth of the Harlem Renaissance through the harrowing early years of the Depression. The statistics include age distribution, marital conditions, fertility, school attendance and “illiteracy”, family structure, infant mortality, retail business, agriculture and religious affiliation. The volume was prepared by Charles E. Hall, the "preeminent statistician of African American life during the early twentieth century," directing "a corps of Negro clerks." Very large volume will require extra postage. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 845 pages
