$175
Title: The Conquest, The Story of a Negro Pioneer
Author: The Pioneer (Oscar Devereaux Micheaux)
Publisher: The Woodruff Press (Lincoln, NE)
Printing Year: 1913

Condition/Details: Bound in light blue cloth with white stamped lettering, this scarce volume is a first edition of the filmmaker Oscar Micheaux's first book, loosely based on his own experience as a homesteader in South Dakota. Oscar Devereaux Micheaux (2 January 1884 – 25 March 1951) was an American author and film director. Although predated by the short lived Lincoln Motion Picture Company that put out smaller films, he is regarded as the first African-American feature filmmaker, and the most prominent producer of race films.

Micheaux was born near Metropolis, Illinois, and grew up in Great Bend, Kansas, one of eleven children of former slaves. As a young boy, he shined shoes and worked as a porter on the railway. As a young man, he very successfully homesteaded a farm in Gregory County, South Dakota, where he began writing stories. Micheaux overcame many of the racist attitudes and restrictions on African-American publishers and authors by forming his own publishing company to sell his books door-to-door.

The advent of the motion picture industry intrigued him as a vehicle to tell his stories. He formed his own movie production company and, in 1919, became the first African-American to make a film. He wrote, directed and produced the silent motion picture, The Homesteader, starring pioneering African-American actress Evelyn Preer, based on his novel of the same name. He used autobiographical elements in The Exile, his first feature film with sound, in which the central character leaves Chicago to buy and operate a ranch in South Dakota. In 1924, his film, Body and Soul, introduced the movie-going public to Paul Robeson. (biography courtesy of Wikipedia)

The work is illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Micheaux and black and white photographs throughout. The volume shows light external age/wear, with the white writing on the spine faded and sunning and rubbing to the spine and boards. The text block is solidly bound with clean pages. The book measures approximately 5 1/4" x 7 3/4" and contains 311 pages.
