1932 - PETERKIN, Julia. BRIGHT SKIN. Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1932. Limited edition, no. 62 of 250 copies signed by the author on limitation page. With note on Peterkin's personal stationery responding to request for an autographed book, probably a different title, dated 1942. Owner's bookplate on front pastedown, else fine. Julia Peterkin (1880-1961), mistress of Lang Syne, a South Carolina plantation, rejected the racial stereotypes common in much of Southern literature at the time and achieved success through her pioneering, realistic portrayals of African Americans in literature.
