Talking Animals, illustrated by James A. Porter (USED)
$75.00

The Associated Publishers Inc., 1949, nod, 4to, b&w illustrations by James A. Porter, African folk tales and crafts by Wilfrid Dyson Hambly (1886-1962) curator of African Ethnology at Chicago natural History Museum.  VG/VG

James A. Porter, born in Baltimore in 1905, has been called the first African-American art historian. His 1943 book, Modern Negro Art, was the earliest comprehensive treatment of African-American art and remains a classic in its field. He attended public schools in the District of Columbia and later graduated from Howard University in 1927. He became an art instructor at the university and chairman of its art department, a position he retained until his death. TALKING ANIMALS is a rare example of children's illustration from this pillar of American art history scholarship.
