Poor quality scan of an important musicological work from 1914 that attempts to connect African American folk music with West African sources, including Hebrew, Arabic, and Moorish. Note the discussion on the Flattened Seventh. Search Jews, Oriental, Semitones, Minor, Eastern, Wild Notes (often used by early American descriptions of non-Western melody), etc.
