About This Item

[no place given]: [W. B. Conkey Co., printer], 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Octavo, 280pp. A very good copy in the publisher's blue cloth. Boards slightly dust-soiled, top edge and fore-edge with scuffing/sahallow insect damage, but the contents clean and bright. Gutter very thinly split at p. 80; still a strong, sound copy. This copy bears the ownership signature (dated 1929) of Howard Kester, the left-wing Christian preacher and activist, best known for his influence in organizing the Southern Tenant Farmer's Union. The book is scarce in commerce, and is a hopeful and defiant treatise celebrating recent and ongoing progress of African-American life in the south in the 1920s, all in the face of a tyrannical Jim Crow regime. Not in Work. Not catalogued in the Blockson collection.

About Cleveland Book Company

We are proud members of the ABAA.

As a small, independent bookseller in Cleveland, Ohio, I deal in general used, rare, and antiquarian books, autographs, manuscripts, pamphlets, and personal and family papers in all subjects. My family has been in the antiquarian book business since 1971. Are you moving, downsizing, or doing some spring cleaning? Did you inherit or otherwise come into some old books? Or, maybe you've collected modern novels from the last thirty or fifty years. No matter what kinds of books you have, we'd love to take a look at them! We travel throughout Ohio, western Pennsylvania and New York, southern Michigan, and eastern Indiana, and will travel farther in some cases to look at whole libraries or even just a few particularly interesting books. Give us a call at (216) 352-3940 and we can talk more about the kinds of books you have.
