The Big Sea: An Autobiography.
by [Harlem Renaissance] Hughes, Langston.

Publisher Information:
Knopf, New York: 1940.

A Very Good, tight copy with foxing to the board edges in a Very Good plus, bright, unclipped dust jacket with foxing to the folds of the jacket. There are two closed edge tears. This very uncommon autobiography chronicles the life of Langston Hughes with a special focus on his coming of age in Paris in the 1920s and his role in the Harlem Renaissance. As a black poet, novelist and playwrite, Hughes became of one of the pre-eminent writers of the modern movement, but not before working at a number odd jobs along the way including working as a seaman on tramp freighters to Europe, teaching English in Mexico and working in a night club in Paris.
