The two modifier are not parallel:
1.the first book by a Black woman
They are parallel in E.

Should be E.
The last part of the sentence is an appositive modifying "collection". saurya is right about parallellism and you can see that only E omits any kind of pronoun to replace "collection". This is how you should look at the question:

A collection [...],
1- the first book by a Black woman
and

A and B use pronoun "it" which is unnecessary whereas C and D misplace "only" and also add wordiness with "one".
