1 Cobb, Irvin S. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
New York Bobbs-Merrill 1941 First Edition 
Very Good in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in red. Octavo. 61pps., with a dozen line drawings. Stated First Edition. There is a bit of rubbing and fading to the edges of the cloth and a soil-mark, atop the textblock, which extends down into the upper part of pages 36-37. Otherwise clean, tight, and bright. No previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has rubbing wear along the folds, modest chipping at the extremities, and some soiling apparent only to its interior; the original price is intact.

It is a chapter made up of tales and anecdotes about his loyal, life-long friends among the Negroes of Paducah. He knows well, he reveals supremely well, their emotional hearts, their love of florid language, their unfailing flair for the dramatic. He pays here his gay and touching tribute to a race.
The chapter leads up to something stunning -- the report of a post-war mass meeting where the Negroes of Paducah gathered to honor one of their own who had gained glory on the fields of France and Mr. Cobb was the only white speaker.
That story was wellnigh everything -- humor and pathos and drama, tense action, suspense and climax, all seasoned by the rare Cobbian wit, polished and fashioned by his skill into a classic..."
