Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization
Poplarville, Miss.: Dream House Publishing Co. 1947 - Binding tight; spine shows a little wear. P/o bookplate on inside front cover dated April 8, 1947; laid in is original store receipt from that day. On front endpaper, p/o has written, "Senator Theodore G. Bilbo died today about 1 p.m. Aug 21st 1947."; on the first couple of blank pages, p/o pasted newspaper obituaries of Bilbo, who died only five months after the publication of "Take Your Choice." So the first several pages show a little rippling; otherwise all are tight and clean. Unclipped ($3.00) DJ is unfaded but shows some wear to edges and corners, with chipping along bottom edge of front panel. A landmark omnibus work collecting every racist and segregationist trope of the era, by one of the most notorious political figures in U.S. history. Jim Crow Mississippi elected Bilbo to two terms as governor and three terms as U.S. senator, the last in 1946; after the Senate refused to seat him, he retired to finish writing and to publish "Take Your Choice." An uncommon title, particularly in jacket. 330 pages. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
