Item description

Photo Gallery Description This is an extremely rare First Edition Signed book, "The First Book of Negroes" by Langston Hughes. Was published by Franklin Watts of New York in 1952. The book is in Hard Cover w/o dust jacket. Hard cover is a little torn up. However, the inside of the book is in EXCELLENT Condition. The author, Langston Hughes, signed this book at the year this book was published "Merry Christmas to Leon Sincerely Langston Hughes, New York 1952" This is a very rare children's book of famous African American historical figures For those of you don't know Langston Hughes, he achieved fame as a poet during the burgeoning of the arts known as the Harlem Renaissance, but those who label him "a Harlem Renaissance poet" have restricted his fame to only one genre and decade. In addition to his work as a poet, Hughes was a novelist, columnist, playwright, and essayist, and though he is most closely associated with Harlem, his world travels influenced his writing in a profound way. Langston Hughes followed the example of Paul Laurence Dunbar, one of his early poetic influences, to become the second African American to earn a living as a writer. His long and distinguished career produced volumes of diverse genres and inspired the work of countless other African American writers. This book will be sold as is, no returns. Thanks!
