Dunham, Katherine, drawings by Ted Cook

Katherine Dunham's journey to Accompong

Henry Holt and Company, New York. 1946, ix, 162p., introduction, drawings and decorative chater headings, very good first edition in cloth boards and unclipped dj with minor wear at head of spine. Dunham, the foremost African American dancer of this century, was originally trained as an anthropologist. This book came out of her field studies in Jamaica during the 1930s. "It was during this visit," Ralph Linton remarks in his introduction," that Miss Dunham laid the foundations for the choreography which has made her an outstanding figure in the entertainment world." - ix
