Description:
First Edition/Stated First Printing; A Near Fine book in a Very Good dust jacket. SIGNED w/o inscription to the title page. An outstanding copy of this classic work of 20th century literature, certainly relevant in today's social climate; winner of the 1953 National Book Award, making Ellison the first African-American to win the award. This copy is in near fine condition with a square, tight binding, clean beige and black boards with light fading to the spine lettering, and clean pages throughout with only minor intermittent foxing; the book does show some mild rubbing to the spine ends and edges, light sunning to the spine, and an effaced label to the front free paper. Housed in a sharp and clean, original, intact very good price clipped dust jacket that shows some minor rubbing, chipping, and creasing to the panel edges with negligible losses and some mild creasing along the flap folds with one closed tear along the front flap fold. Overall, a collectible and presentable copy housed in a handsome… Read More

First edition, 6th printing. The existential odyssey of a young African-American man.

Ellison, inspired by Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground, imagines the alienated voice of his unnamed narrator—faced with the paradoxes of a journey to self—constrained by the limits of his society.
