Ballad of a Brown Girl

New York: Harper and Brothers, 1927. First Edition. One of 500 copies printed by "Opportunity: The Journal of Negro Life," this being an unnumbered presentation copy INSCRIBED on the front flyleaf in 1936 by the author: "For Henry Moon / With best wishes / Countee Cullen / New York / Sept. 25, 36." Henry Lee Moon was an African-American journalist associated with the "Amsterdam News," and, later, "The Crisis." He also served as Public Relations Director for the NAACP in the 1930s.

A single long poem by Cullen, illustrated in an art deco style throughout by Charles Cullen.

Large octavo, paper-covered cloth boards with a paper spine label. Pages uncut. Very Good plus with some toning and edge wear to the paper spine label (though titling is completely intact), lacking the slipcase. A bright, attractive example.
