. Portrait frontispiece. 270pp., Illustrated with photographic images following Anderson's rise to fame. In 1939, Anderson stood before the Lincoln Memorial in Washington and, with the greatest voice of that generation, staged before an assemblage of 75,000 people. Cabinet members, senators, congressmen, and others attended. This brought her fame and forms the climax of the author's story of Miss Anderson, a young negro girl of humble origins. He met her in Berlin. From there they traveled together touring Europe. He traveled with her over 10 years through Europe, S. America and throughout the US. He also wrote both words and music to many of Anderson's songs and it played a major part in the development of her career. Bound in green cloth, spine lettering gilt, some toning to endpapers, only very slight toning to page edges. A very good copy in unclipped pictorial dust jacket lettered in brown light chipping to spine ends, joints rubbed.
