African Americana Sept. 2021

James Cummins Bookseller is proud to present this collection of African-Americana, most of it new arrivals. Highlights include a number of important slave narratives; a scarce decorative broadside printing of the Emancipation Proclamation; William Wells Brown's American Fugitive in Europe, the earliest African American travelogue; Cab Calloway's Cat-ologue, the first ever dictionary of "jive"; selections in photography, visual art, archives, and Abolitionist material culture, including a printed billhead from a shop that offered "Dry-Goods, Groceries, &c. Free from Slave Labour"; as well as all of the very special items below.
