New York: The Macmillan Company, 1934.
First edition. Limited edition, copy #93 of a limited 500 copies signed by Alan and John A. Lomax. Very Good, with spine cloth toned, spotted and lightly scuffed. Spotting to red topstain. Previous owner details to front free end paper, front inner hinge slightly exposed. Lacking the publisher's slip case. A nice distillation of the father-son duo John and Alan Lomax's work, who traveled the American countryside documenting its rich folk music, here in turn offering a glimpse into a by-gone era with chapter headings ranging from Railroad Songs to Southern Chain Gangs, Negro Bad Men, White Desparados, Creole Negros, Cocaine and Whiskey, Minstrel Types, Songs from the Mountains and Cowboy Songs.
