Good. The back cover has a forward lean. Not so pretty library withdrawal in the plastic, protective covers. Some shelf wear and scuff to the plastic covers. The last blank cover page has been ripped by the library leaving a jagged edge. Stamped on the inside cover pages and at the page edge, this book remains useful. Economically priced for your needs.
Louise Costello. Good. Lib rebind with slight spine end wear-distinctives mainly on front endpapers-pages clean and tight but 2 of approximately 14 beautiful lithography-like portraits are present but loose.

Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. 339 p. illus. 21 cm. 12595 12595--Second rev. ed. published in 1976 under title: Great Black Americans. Published in the 1940s, ...an amazing compendium of info on outstanding contemporary black americans. A great strength of this book is the variety of lives and careers it discusses. Subjects include poet Langston Hughes, conductor Dean Dixon, educator Mordecai Johnsnon, along with Marian Anderson, James Weldon Johnson and a host of others. For many years this was the best reference work of its type as an intro to these figures. The original illustrations, elegant, lively portrait drawings are beautiful. The book was later revised and expanded by a different author and the illustrations were replaced with lesser work. Overall, the first version is a real find and something of a milestone in its genre.
