Antique first edition and clothbound copy of Booker T. Washington's autobiography, entitled "The Story of My Life and Work", originally copyrighted in 1901. Binding is tight and sturdy, with one loose section (pictured). First page signed by a previous owner "Mr. John Headley, 1903". Few areas of discoloration throughout (mainly on back cover), but in good condition for a 117+ year old text. See photos for condition.
