Onitsha Chapbooks: Various Authors
West African Market Literature: A Collection of 30 Examples
Mostly Onitsha]: Various Publishers, 1959. Various printings. 30 slim octavo pamphlets. An excellent, representative sampling of the popular literature that flourished in West African market stalls in the 1960s and 70s, most of it characterized by sensational (and even slightly prurient) content, rustic production values, and a disarmingly naive (to an American reader's eyes at least) approach to its subject matter. More information on request. Uniformly very good or better in stapled, printed wrappers.
Bookseller: harpersbooks_books (harpersbooks.com) [East Hampton, New York, United States]
