    Du Bois, W. E. Burghardt. (DuBois)
    BLACK FOLK THEN AND NOW: An Essay in the History and Sociology of the Negro Race.

    Edition: 4th printing.

    New York: Henry Holt, (1945.) dj. Hardcover - An addition to being a history of the African and African American people, this is a study of the cultures they created. Written essentially to refute the idea that "the Negro has no history." Despite being issued in multiple printings, this is surprisingly uncommon. Bibliography, index, ix, 401 pp.

    Condition: Very good+ in blue cloth in a fair only dust jacket (minor shelfwear to the boards, but the dj has tape reinforcement along both the top and the bottom and the front fold - still it is basically complete, and it did serve to protect the book itself.)
