Mainstream Publishers, New York. 1957, 1959, 1961, 3 vols. (316, 367, 349p.), first edition jacketed cloth casebindings, djs a bit shelf worn, not price clipped. Du Bois' monumental trilogy interprets the Black experience in America using fiction as his vehicle. See his cool, logical, knowledgeable appraisal of Booker T. Washington in vol.1, a chapter-length account he entitles "Color Caste;" starts p.214, plainly a dissection easier to frame in fictional form than in mere "fact".
