GARVEY, Marcus (1887-1940). Minutes of Proceedings of the Meeting Held at the Royal Albert Hall...Speech Presenting the Case of the Negro for International Racial Adjustment. [London?]: n.p., 1928.

8vo (140 x 214 mm). (Light toning). Contemporary wrappers (see below). 

FIRST EDITION of the report of Garvey's speech given at Royal Albert Hall on 6 June 1928, though the wrappers advertise the minutes of proceedings of a speech by Garvey given at the Century Theatre in London on 2 September 1928. Garvey's speech at Royal Albert Hall was his first in England and was sparsely attended in part due to newspapers' refusal to advertise the event. The African Publication Society in London issued a reprint in 1968. 

Provenance:Property from the Collection of Eric Majette Jr.

Estimate: $500 - $700
