The Fire in the Flint
Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1924 - First edition. Contemporary owner's small signature, some spotting and faint staining to the boards, a near very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. The author's first book, one of the first wave of novels from the Harlem Renaissance, about a black medical doctor who returns to his Georgia home hoping to improve the lot of his fellows, only to be met with prejudice, suspicion, and violence. It deals in part with lynching, a practice against which White, in his capacity as the outspoken and longtime executive secretary of the NAACP, waged a long and ultimately successful campaign. A moderately worn but presentable copy. [Attributes: First Edition]
