NEGRO FOLK RHYMES: Wise and Otherwise, With a Study ~ by Thomas W. Talley ~ First Edition / First Printing, 1922
Publisher: MacMillan Company, New York (1922)
Rare first edition, first printing of "Negro Folk Rhymes: Wise and Otherwise," by Thomas W. Talley. The boards and binding are solid and tight save some light wear at the spine ends and remains of a library sticker on the spine. The pages are crisp and clean save for library book plate on the inside front board and library check-out card on the inside rear board. Small embossed stamp on the title page and p. 1, from the Hartford Theological Seminary. A fascinating and rare find. Samples of folk songs are divided into dance rhymes, love rhymes, pastime rhymes, courtship rhymes, marriage rhymes, nursery rhymes, wise sayings, Venezuelan rhymes, Jamaica rhymes, and more.
