Condition/Details: Bound in gray cloth with bright gilt embossing to spine, this volume is a scarce copy of the winner of the 1979 Booker Prize for Fiction, with the distinction of a dated, author-signed inscription card tipped-in to the dedication page.

The epigraph, "che mena il vento, e che batte la pioggia, e che s'incontran con si aspre lingue" (whom the wind drives, or whom the rain beats, or those who clash with such bitter tongues) comes from Canto XI of Dante's Inferno. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Title: Candle-Lightin' Time
Author: Paul Laurence Dunbar
Publisher: Dodd Mead & Co.
Printing Year: 1901 First edition

Condition/Details: Bound in pictorial olive boards with black and red and white and gilt inset and red lettering, this antique volume is a scarce collection of poetry by a seminal African-American poet of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. "Candle-lightin' time" is after dinner, when the children gather around, and their father uses his hands to make shadow creatures on the wall. The photographs in this volume are of black men, women and children, mostly around their homes and fields. Of particular interest is Dunbar's poem "When Dey Listed Colored Soldiers": a black father aches to see his son go off to fight for the Union -- against their former masters. All but one of these poems ("Lullaby") had appeared earlier in 1901 in "Shoemaker's Best Selections for Readings and Recitations." This edition is highly sought after for several reasons: it serves as an exemplification of early black American literature, contains rare photographs by the Hampton Institute Camera Club, and includes page decorations and a binding designed by Margaret Armstrong. The volume shows light external age/wear, and is solidly bound with clean pages. The book measures approximately 6" x 8.75" and contains 127 pages.
