THE CHINABERRY TREE.
Edition: 7th printing.
New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1939. dj. Hardcover - The third novel by this important Harlem Renaissance writer, originally published in 1931. Introduction by Zona Gale and foreword by Jessie Fauset.
Condition: Near fine in a very good dust jacket. The orange cloth covers are very bright, with just a little shelfwear on the lower edges. Minor foxing to the margins of a few pages. The scarce dustjacket is price-clipped with light edgewear and some chipping at the folds, but is overall quite attractive. Contemporary reviews of 'Plum Bun' on the back cover - including comments from Countee Cullen and W.E.B. DuBois. All of Fauset's novels are hard to find in any early hardcover edition, and copies in dustjacket are even more elusive.
