Title: The Unmarried Wife.
Description: NY. The MaCaulay Company. 1933. First Edition. A Harlem Renaissance figure, Thurman focuses on "the human realities and the pitfalls of common-law marriage" in this literary expose. "Here is a striking example of both the benefits an the evils of unconventional marriage... What only man and woman have joined together looks easy for another woman to put asunder." Furman also wrote Private Practice which exposes the underworlds of the medical profession; and the medical expose The Interne which he wrote with Wallace Thurman. VG+/VG- in clean, crisp light blue-grey cloth stamped in brown ink with drawing of a mother holding up her infant on the spine. Clean and tight internally. In an edge-rubbed dustjacket chipped at the corners and the top and bottom of the spine; with a few small closed tears on either side of the spine top and a small snag to the wrapper on the rear panel. The front panel of the jacket depicts a woman holding up her infant child to the judge who is leaning over the bench looking compassionately at the imploring mother. A scarce book in dustjacket.
