First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “For my friends Dr. and Mrs. “Tex” Burnett, from an “ole Lincolnite” – Langston. New York, November 27, 1950″. With the original typed mailing label from Hughes to Burnett loosely inserted. “Lincolnite” refers to Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, where Hughes earned his undergraduate degree in 1929 before returning to live in Harlem.

Octavo. Original blue-green cloth, titles to spine gilt on black ground and to upper board in black, top edge dyed black. With the dust jacket. Lightly rubbed at extremities, spine very slightly faded, contents toned. An excellent copy in the rubbed and nicked jacket with tanned spine panel which is split cleanly down the upper fold and repaired with tape to the verso.
