Fine in Fine- jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. "For the liberian Centennial and International Exposition, two Afro-American artists received commission: Duke Ellington, as composer, and M. B. Tolson, as poet laureate. The originally and power and range of Mr. Tolson's Libretto, with its visual and auditory figures, its juxaposed ideas and dramatis personae, place this poem in the great tradition marked by Hart Crane's The Bridge.
