Sam Patch: The High, Wide & Handsome Jumper

Bontemps, Arna, and Jack Conroy. Sam Patch: The High, Wide & Handsome Jumper. Boston: Houghton Mifflin 1951. [1st ed.] 39p, many ills. by Paul Brown, some in color. Good hardcover (light shelf soil; one page soiled); lacks d.j. Yellow cloth printed in black. ** Bontemps was the noted Harlem Renaissance novelist and poet. Here he reimagines for children the life of the early 19th-century performer and legendary champion leaper (Niagara Falls, etc.). Brown's illustrations here are rather mannered and unlike most of his other work. Item #14625
