This is an auction for HARLEM: THE GREAT BLACK WAY 1900-1950 by Jervis Anderson.

From the dust jacket:

“HARLEM: THE GREAT BLACK WAY is an important essay in American cultural history, packed with incidents, insights and memorable characters. It begins with the migration of blacks from southern Manhattan at the turn of this century, and ends with the decline of the district in 1950, when ‘the hearts of new arrivals no longer missed a beat’. The author’s chronological account ranges over all aspects of Harlem life and the arts of literature, painting and music. It includes the show places like the Cotton Club and the Apollo where affluent whites gathered to hear the best of twenties’ and thirties’ jazz, and the speakeasies where the drink flowed throughout Prohibition. Across its pages sparkles a galaxy of stars: politicians like Adam Clayton Powell Jr, sportsmen like Joe Louis, writers like Carl van Vechten and Richard Winter, and above all the jazz musicians such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Fats Waller.”

Hardback 1982.
