Scarce first edition of Du Bois's autobiographical collection of essays, verse and fiction, rarely found with the dust jacket. "If The Souls of Black Folk achieved its singular impact through W.E.B. Du Bois's masterly interweaving of the personal and the universal in such a way that each appropriated something of the illustrative and symbolic value of the other, much of Darkwater: Voices from Within the Veil was a cri de coeur in which the author's anger at the absurdities of racial prejudice crackled through the text like electric jolts that scorched, illumined, or stunned" (David Levering Lewis, from the introduction to the 2004 Washington Square Press edition).
