8vo, original blue cloth lettered in gilt, illustrated, [viii], 440 pp. Inscribed on front pastedown, top hinge a little weak, but still very firm, light wear, normal aging; very good overall. Wendell P. Dabney (1865-1952) was born in Richmond, Virginia, and would become one of the early African American students to attend Oberlin College. After settling in Cincinnati in the 1890s he established a music studio there, and became the first president of the local chapter of the NAACP. He established a local newspaper called "The Ohio Enterprise", which continued publication until 1952.This copy of his classic Black local history is inscribed by him on the front pastedown. This work, which was reprinted in 1970 by the Negro University Press, contains a rich history of African Americans in Ohio. Dabney covers a very broad range of topics and events, including the condition of "Negroes" in Cincinnati before the Civil Way, mob violence in 1841, value of mixed and separate schools, and views on residential segregation.
