Burton Publishing Co: Kansas City, Missouri 1915 Seven illustr by William Hamilton, 8.25 x 6, tan cloth with black lettering, front cover illustr of an African-American woman, 210 pp. Covers fair, very heavily soiled and worn, stained, corners and spine tips bumped and frayed, upper spine area torn along front gutter, inner hinges starting, text block badly cracked, loose signatures, ink and pencil names and inscriptions, soiling, staining, creased corners. On the free front endpaper is written in pencil: O.M. Shackelford 2605 Market Place St. Louis Mo. and below in red ink "Theodore B. Haynes is my name, Negro is my nation. Heaven is my hiding place. St. Louis is my stations 428 Montrose Ave. St. Louis Mo." On the next blank page, again in red ink, he has written "Prof Tadrick Beaudon (sp?) Haynes of St. Regis Spmts (sp?). St. Louis, Mo." And there’s more: on the last illustr in the book of a man and woman holding each other (Lillian Simmons and Charles Christopher (?) is written, in red ink "Mr - Mrs Theo. Haynes" and the last blank pages "(My full name) Theodore Thepolus Benjamin. Alexander Cegira Haynes." "Tad Doo Haynes. Mrs. E.W. Poindexter," "Lefty Tad Haynes of Tennessee home town Clarksville Tennessee"” The pencil address was in a different hand. Otis M. Shackelford, born 1871 in Tipton, Monteau County, Missouri, left home to attend the African-American college in Jefferson City, Mo., the Lincoln Institute and became a teacher. Perhaps Haynes was a fellow student or teacher friend or no connection at all. Does the pencil address of Shackelford (which was the correct address for this time period) relate to the above or not. Sold as is. Scarce. FIRST ED.
