The Shadow That Scares Me
Garden City, Doubleday, 1968. A collection of pieces by the comedian and activist, edited by James R. McGraw. This copy is inscribed by Gregory to the singer Carmen McRae. Gregory and McRae shared a billing at the Village Gate in Greenwich Village with John Coltrane in 1964, and in 1965 the three shared a monthlong bill there. Rare signed, and an excellent association. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with several edge chips and one edge tear. [#033387] SOLD
