Mules and Men

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, (1935).

Sold

First edition. Introduction by Franz Boas. Illustrated by Miguel Covarrubias. Fine in near fine dustwrapper, with very slight tanning on the spine, a couple of small and faint splash marks on the spine, and some folds professionally repaired. The author's second book, a collection of Negro folk tales collected by Hurston in Florida. Because of the stiff and brittle paper employed in the construction of the jacket, this is the scarcest of Hurston's books to find in fine condition. It is seldom found intact, and when it is found is invariably chipped. This is easily the nicest copy we've seen.

Collecting tips:

All of the books published during the Florida author's lifetime are desirable, especially jacketed copies of her first book Jonah's Gourd Vine (1934 - don't be upset if the jacket has a red Book-of-the-Month Club sticker, the book and jakcet are otherwise identical), and her best-known work Their Eyes Were Watching God (1937). Her book Mules and Men (1935) is usually less expensive, but is exceptionally uncommon in a fine jacket.
