Beautiful illustrations of African Americans from 1902.

Yes, we are judging this by it’s cover because it’s a really cool one. It makes us want to look inside where it gets even better. The book is Napoleon Jackson by Ruth McEnery Stuart, 1902, and yes, we love illustrations, covers, interiors and typography as much as the words on the page. Very rare to find a book with African American subjects like this one from that era.

Isn’t this nice? There are several more like it inside. $10
