Ezekiel was a very popular children's book at the time of publication. Ezekiel's type was hand drawn, with illustrations inserted into the type to take the place of some of the words. 

"Emblematic of Florida when it was part of the Deep South, Ezekiel was written in African-American dialect, and was tremendously popular. But in the early days of the civil rights struggle, books like Little Black Sambo, and Ezekiel, as well as radio and television programs like Amos and Andy stereotyping African Americans were essentially "purged" from popular culture."

This antique book was sourced from the estate of an avid book collector. Inscription on inside front cover with purchase information and name of owner.
