About This Item

Boston: The Stratford Company, 1921. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. Small hole on front hinge, a couple of very modest stains on the boards, and some wear to the corners, a near very good copy lacking the rare dustwrapper. Hill was an important African-American educator, teaching first at Tuskegee and later was the head of the Cheyney Training School. This is his first book, and only volume of poetry.


The first and only book of poetry written by the important African-American educator Leslie Pinckney Hill. Hill attended Harvard from 1899 to 1904, receiving his master’s in education before teaching at Tuskeegee and other institutions.
