Item Description: Verve Records, [n.d.]. A reissue of this vinyl recording re-engineers for Ôstereo effect.Õ The LP looks bright; a few minor pops, but the album plays through fine. The album cover has a small, punched hole - suggesting this album was a Ôcutout;Õ a bit of a wear and scuffing, otherwise near fine. HughesÕs poetry set to music composed by Leonard Feather and Charlie Mingus. Side one featues an all-star sextet with Red Allen, Vic Dickenson, Sam Taylor, Al Williams, Milt Hinton and Osie Johnson. Side two performed by the Horace Parlan Group, actually the Mingus quintet, but using ParlanÕs name for contractual reasons. Bookseller Inventory # 11049004

Item Description: Alfred A. Knopf, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1926. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Presumed 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾", up to 9¾" tall. Presumed first printing (no printing information listed, aside from 1926 on title page and copyright page). Orange papered boards with yellow polka-dots, over blue quarter cloth binding, with significantly faded yellow lettering embossed on spine. Significantly faded (blue?) top stain. Deckle fore-edge. Plain endpapers. Extremities of boards are lightly bumped and moderately chipped, with chips to the paper up to 1" x 3/8" triangular at the corners. Otherwise the boards are only slightly rubbed, with light scratching to the rear board. Spine is moderately age-darkened and text block is lightly age-darkened. Small, faint ghost of a pencil note on the front pastedown, and light finger smudge on p. 15, otherwise this copy is unmarked, clean and bright. Binding is slightly corkscrewed, but not shaken, and hinges are very sound. Overall, this copy is in good condition; the primary faults preventing it from being near fine are the darkened spine/faded spine text, and the moderate chipping to the paper at the corners of the boards. We are happy to take photos upon request. Still, it remains a fairly attractive copy of this special first edition. Bookseller Inventory # L0774
