stated "second edition," actually the second printing of the first edition issued two months after the first. Du Bois' chef d'oeuvre, a collection of essays that have withstood the test of time. Du Bois challenged the "bootstrap" theories of Booker T. Washington and advocated a much more ambitious and militant plan for the new century. Includes his famous "Of Mr. Booker T. Washington and Others." Lacks the portrait frontispiece as with many of the second and third printings we've seen. Blockson, 101, #52; Partington, 2333a.
