Description:
New York, Jonathan Cape [1933]., 1933. First English edition (from American sheets). 8vo. 70 full page b/w plates from photographs by Doris Ulmann. Text by Julia Peterkin. Original terra-cotta cloth stamped in black on the spine. Original dust jacket (unclipped; spine faded). Very good. 251 pages. No signature or bookplates. Pulitzer-Prize winner. Ulmann's photographs in the Pictorialist/Modernist mode capture the lives of former slaves and their progeny on a South Carolina plantation along the Gullah coast. A highly romantic view of the Southern Black American that, though now dated and politically incorrect, still magically evokes a bygone world. Cf. Roth, Book of 101 Books, p. 78-79.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good.

Description:
New York: Robert O. Ballou, 1933. First Edition. 8vo; 251pp, with 75 photographs on double-sided plates, including frontispiece; original blue cloth, gilt spine, edges faded about 1/8 in, endpapers a bit aged toned, jacket chipped along all edges rubbed ("E" in Peterkin missing on spine) with creases on both front panel, very good in used jacket. Julia Mood Peterkin (1880-1961), South Carolina native, lived on her husband's two-thousand acre plantation and also had a summer home at Murrell's Inlet, a coastal village. She wrote, with realism and dignity, plantation stories and stories of the Gullah African American tenant farmers of the Sea Islands and coastal regions. She was a sympathetic and outstanding commentator of the lives of this vanishing black culture. Doris Ulmann (1882-1934) was a well-respected photographer of the period who specialized in portraying the people of the "Southern Highlands" Appalachia and the coastal blacks Peterkin wrote about. Ulman's photographs of now vanished worlds… Read more
