The Souls of Black Folk: Essays and Sketches

Chicago: A.C. McClurg & Co., 1931.

Seventeenth edition. Signed by W.E.B. Du Bois on the front free endpaper, below a tipped in illustration which is perhaps obscuring evidence of a former bookplate removal. Bound in publisher's black cloth lettered in silver. Near Fine with spine faded, lightly worn at ends, and cloth showing several faint scratches. Pages lightly tanned, small tear to bottom of front free endpaper.

A seminal work in the history of sociology and a cornerstone of African American literature, in which Du Bois discusses "double consciousness"--the idea that African Americans have two fields of vision, one how they see themselves, and the other how others view them. Item #140940657
