Hughes, Langston
Fine Clothes to the Jew
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1927. First Edition. First edition, first printing. Signed by Langston Hughes and inscribed to a former owner on the front free endpaper. Bound in publisher's patterned paper-covered boards over black cloth spine, lacking the dust jacket. Very Good with covers rubbed at edges, spine cloth faded and lightly frayed at ends. Black topstain worn. Previous owner bookplate to front paste down. Pages toned, several with small marginal chips, and foxed throughout--heaviest at prelims and terminals. The author's second book of poetry, unusual in its time for depicting African American life in an unsentimental light. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
Bookseller: Burnside Rare Books [United States]
