THE NEGRO QUESTION OR HINTS FOR THE PHYSICAL IMPROVEMENT OF THE NEGRO RACE, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO WEST AFRICA
London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1892. First Edition. Hardcover. Text block cracked in two places but still tight, some pages roughly opened; spine rubbed so that lettering is hard to read. Very Good. Decorated green cloth; [8], 188, [12] pages. Consists of five chapters: "Negro Hideousness the Principle Curse of the Race," "Divine Discontent;" "Miscegenation;" "West African Half-Castes," and "Relation of Races." What is most surprising about this title is the discovery one makes when one comes to page 41: "I am a Negro of pure descent, I have travelled a little, I have been educated at Oxford ... but I must confess with regret that, except the Chinese, I have never seen another race approaching, even within a measurable distance, the Negro in ugliness." Maxwell's belief is that blacks and whites are equal in all respects except for physical appearance, and that that can be improved in his race by breeding with whites. This title and an 1881 pamphlet of 23 pages on relations between Europe and West Africa by Maxwell appear in Work, page 172.
