Book Condition: Fine


Very special book in excellent condition. No tears or chips, no writing, no price clip. Dustjacket protected by brand new mylar cover. Bookplate affixed to front free endpaper decorated with African motif and marked A Cultural Exchange, Cleveland, Ohio. Signed at top "For -----'s students. Virignia Hamilton." Beneath the signature of the late Virginia Hamilton is that of her husband, children's author, Arnold Adoff. Adoff's signature is always hard to decipher, but we matched it with another of his signed books. A lovely volume with stark black and white images. Traces the history of slavery in America through the time of the Emancipation Proclamation and profiles such well-known figures as Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth, but also the lesser known such as Henry Box Brown who built a crate and mailed himself to freedom. 151 pages. Indexed. We're seeking a very special home for this one.
