First Edition. Theodore Nadejen dustjacket art and decorations. Author's most remembered work on African American life. Title was a successful Broadway play starring Jack Carter and Peter Clark. An uncommon First Edition. This copy presumably from the library of pulp author H. Bedford Jones with what appears to be his ownership signature at front endpaper. Very Good, some soiling to cloth in Good dustjacket, lacking top two inches of spine, modest soiling to panels, nickel sized chip at top rear panel.
