The Upward Path: the Evolution of a Race

New York: Eaton & Mains, 1909. 1st Edition. 8vo. Very Good. Item #17557

A compelling 1909 1st Edition covering the evolution of the African American race from the first slaves transported across the Atlantic, through the Civil War and then the slow upward mobility after Emancipation.

Illustrated with historic black and white photographs, including post Civil War African Americans working in the Southern cotton fields.

Helm's work includes several appendices which provide detailed breakdowns of the Jim Crow era Negro population across the land, such as total population, percentage, distribution, and the future of the black population in America.

Brown cloth with titling in gilt to front and spine. Square tight binding. Clean interior. Mild rubbing and edge wear to binding.

A lovely copy.
