According to the verso of the front wrapper, "Voice of the I Am is the mouth-piece through which the Ascended Masters' Instruction can reach the students quickly, that the most powerful work possible for America and the world may be done by the students to release the greatest Light in the shortest time." These Ascended Masters being Mr. and Mrs. Guy W.

        THE NEGRO AND HIS MUSIC. Bronze Booklet No. 2

      Washington DC:: Associates in Negro Folk Education,, 1936. First Edition. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED "FOR MARIAN ANDERSON / IN DEEP APPRECIATION AND / FRIENDSHIP, / ALAIN LOCKE / 1939". Very Good++ hardback First Edition First Printing in the original color printed boards with mild edge wear. Offsetting title page. No Dust Jacket issued. 8vo. 142 pp. The volume traces African-American music from slave spirituals through Ragtime and Jazz. In the chapter on "Negro Musicians To-Day" Locke highlights Marian Anderson as one: "Who has now achieved international fame as one of greatest voices of this generation" (page 124). The date of Locke's inscription, 1939, and Locke's academic position in Washington, leads us to consider that the book may well have been presented to Marian Anderson at the time of her historic Easter Day concert at the Lincoln Memorial. A wonderful association copy and a centerpiece of an African-American collection
