Darkwater [Signed Copy]

Harcourt, Brace and Howe: New York, 1920. First Edition. 8vo, black cloth, 276 pp. First edition. Recased in black cloth with rear board replaced. Personal library marks, a few marks in text in pencil, small stain to upper edge of pages, but overall very good due to an expert recasing job. Very Good. Item #List1024

An uncommon signed first edition copy of Du Bois’ first autobiographical work, of three, composed of essays originally written in The Atlantic, the Independent, The Crisis, and The Journal of Race Development. We believe this to be from Du Bois’ personal library, arriving at auction with several other books bearing identical marks to the spines (the other books had the Du Bois library stamp to front free endpapers, this copy is signed by Du Bois in ink). There are a few marks in pencil to the contents in an unknown hand. Expertly recased in black cloth with the original cloth preserved where extant - we acquired it without a rear board - and quite presentable. Without definitive proof of his ownership we have priced it for what it is, a very uncommon signed first edition copy, attractively restored.

Price: $3,500.00
