        Bronze

      Boston: B.J. Brimmer Company. 1922. First. First edition. Introduction by Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois. Printed paper over boards. Boards slightly splayed, and corners a little worn, else a near fine copy of a fragile volume, without dustwrapper (the rear panel and rear flap are laid in). Warmly Inscribed by the author to important African-American journalist and politician, Roscoe Conkling Simmons, widely regarded as the greatest black orator of his generation: "Dec. 27-'22. To Mr. Roscoe C. Simmons shall we not dedicate this page to this day which we record happy + signal. Read page 15 from the Heart of a Woman & thank every God for your exclusion. Sincerely, Georgia Douglas Johnson." For many years Johnson, an African-American woman comfortably married to a prominent Washington attorney, read voraciously, pursued a serious interest in music, and hosted the capital's only African-American literary salon, "The Saturday Nighter's Club." At 41 she published her first book of poetry, The Heart of a Woman, which was well-received but criticized in some quarters for not specifically addressing race. At the dawn of the Harlem Renaissance she published this influential collection in response. Of particular note are her poems concerning alienation and mixed race (Cedric Dover called her "the first to give peoples of mixed origin the pride in themselves that they so badly needed"). A notable association and a rarity of African-American literature. .

Elle traduisit aussi des poèmes de José Maria de Heredia, Pontus de Tyard et Gérard de Nerval. Ces volumes sur les fournitures et la décoration anglaises restent l'une des références dans ce domaine avec les différents travaux de Peter Ward Jackson, Helena Hayward et des membres de la Furniture History Society.
