Group of 14 issues of this landmark African American intellectual publication, beginning with Occasional Papers No. 3 in 1898; the latest journal is No. 22 (1924). Various paginations; small 8tos, original wrappers. Condition varies; many are fragile, particularly the earliest issues, but handleable.Textblocks all appear complete. No journal is missing its front cover, i.e., all are present; however, some (Nos. 3, 4, 7 and 9) are separated and others severely chipped. The 4 issues with the loose front wrappers also are lacking a (blank) bottom wrapper. Conversely, a couple issues-- namely No. 15, No. 16 and No. 17-- are Very Good+ to Near Fine.
