The Sweet Flypaper of Life. Roy De Carava, Langston Hughes.

The Sweet Flypaper of Life

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1955. Cloth. A solid copy of the 1955 stated 1st printing, in its less common hardback edition. Tight and VG+ to Near Fine (very light offsetting along the edges) in a crisp, price-intact ($2.95), VG- example of the fragile dustjacket, with a small degree of chipping at the spine ends, light creasing and wear to the edges, and mild soiling along the panels. Still though, presentable and attractive, and internally, clean as could be, with no writing or markings of any kind. 12mo, one of the great pairings of text and image in 20th century African-American lieterature, with Langston Hughes's moving narrative beautifully complementing Roy De Carava's keenly-felt gravure photographs. Near Fine / Very Good -. Item #18160

Price: $1,000.00
