INSCRIBED BY LANGSTON HUGHES
HUGHES, Langston. Tambourines to Glory. New York, 1958.
First edition of Hughes' landmark novel, conceived as a play and ultimately produced on Broadway, an especially distinctive presentation/association copy warmly inscribed by Hughes to the play's producer while the play was first in rehearsal in 1960, inscribed in Hughes' trademark green ink with his flourishes, "Especially for Joel Schenker, this book that becomes your play. Sincerely, Langston Hughes. During rehearsals, Longacre, New York, August 25, 1960,” this very scarce copy accompanied by an original Folkway LP of Tambourines featuring songs by Hughes and Jobe Huntley, recorded in 1958 by the Porter Singers in Harlem. $5800.
