INSCRIBED BY CHESTER HIMES
HIMES, Chester . Lonely Crusade. New York, 1947.
First edition of Himes' still controversial second book, distinctly pivotal in introducing how racism became "the dominant subject" of his writing, one of the few works written in America before he left to spend most of his years in exile, an especially elusive copy inscribed by him while living in France, "All best Chester Himes, Venelles France,” in original dust jacket. $3200.
