This book is in poor condition and needs to be rebound.Will rebinding devalue the book?
There is a popular poem from that time written by DuBose Heyward inside on the title page.DuBose was the author of Porgy.The Gershwin Bros. turned Porgy into Porgy and Bess the popular musical.
I know who the author is of the poem but I do not know who actually wrote this poem down in this book.
I have contacted the Library of Congress and they sent me a photo copy of DuBose' handwriting along with Dorothy Heywards handwriting,the co-author of Porgy,and the handwriting looks similar to Dorothys signature.
I do not know how to verify this.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I am hoping to find more information on this book.
