This 550 page legendary work is presented in the pub's original full light green cloth with gilt titling and cover graphic. Ever since 1931 Hirschfield Galleries has maintained a reputation for not bragging hardly at all, but, at this time, we would be remiss if we did not mention that both binding and text block of this particular offering are rock solid tight and clean, AAA all the way. Totally unbumped and unmarked, save for the very slightest of corner rubs and the usual light sunning to spine. Similarily the jacket is very nice. Inside you'll be impressed beyond words by the pplay, a musical comedy based on white novelist Roark Bradford's *Ol' Man Adam an' His Chillun*, a retelling of Old Testament stories based on the beliefs of Southern African-Americans, and which featured a large cast of African-Americans during its celebrated New York run. Described by Bruce Kellner in *The Harlem Renaissance: A Historical Dictionary* as "one white writer's version of another white writer's version of one black preacher's version of religion," it nevertheless was well written and enjoyed enormous popularity, winning the Pulitzer Prize for drama and running for several years. Despite opposition from Southern theatre owners, Warner Brothers produced an entertaining and successful 1936 film version directed by Connelly, with Rex Ingram as "De Lawd." Enough said of offerings which speak loudly for themselves. Acquire, enjoy, and share what the self-actualized author has discovered in his extensive intellectual travels to prepare this very informative writing for public edification. Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a permanent character lacking in transitory electronic renderings. As always, more photos and/or info will be sent on request. Indeed, these hallowed pages are stoic, self-reliant, certain, sure and competent in their worthiness. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
