148p. 13 photographs by Carl Julien and a book of the supposed dialogue of African Americans. Though this book was a source of delight to some white southerners who confessed their delight in the speech of blacks, it reflects a degree of caricature not unlike those who promoted the minstrel shows in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Bound in maroon pebble grained cloth with pictorial paste down, A very nice near fine copy with tiny silver spotting to rear board.
