Description:
Published in October 1976 amid significant advance expectations, Roots was immediately successful, garnering a slew of positive reviews and debuting at #5 of The New York Times Best Seller list. By mid-November, it had risen to the #1 spot on the list. The television adaptation of the book aired in January 1977 and within seven months of its release, Roots had sold over 1.5 million copies. In total, Roots spent 22 weeks at the #1 spot on The Times' list, including each of the first 18 weeks of 1977. Ultimately, it was on the list for a total 46 weeks. Together, the success of the novel and its 1977 television adaptation, sparked an explosion of interest in the fields of genealogy and researching family histories. Haley earned a Pulitzer Prize special award in 1977 for Roots. The television miniseries garnered many awards, including nine Emmys and a Peabody. It was remade again in 2016 starring Malachi Kirby, Forest Whitaker, Anna Paquin, Laurence Fishburne and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Description:
Garden City: Doubleday, 1976. Uncorrected Proof. Hardcover. Very good +. Octavo, 569pp. Very good or better in the publisher's grey printed wraps. Spine mildly cupped and age-toned, with a few tiny creases to the wraps. Contents clean and unmarked. Stamp of Crane's Duplicating Service in Barnstable, Mass. to the interior rear wrapper. Extremely uncommon uncorrected proof copy of one of the most celebrated and influential novels of the 20th century, which spent nearly a year at number 1 on the New York Times Best-Seller List, won the Pulitzer Prize, and was adapted into a very popular miniseries the next year. Some differences we note between the proof and the first trade printing are the blank "Acknowledgements" page, a full sentence later removed from the Dedication (in the proof, it reads: "Just by chance [Roots] is being published in the Bicentennial Year of the United States." Spot-checking did not reveal any obvious differences in the narrative text between the two formats. However, the proof… Read More

Description:
New York: Doubleday & Company, 1976. Early Printing. Hardcover. Early Printing. Hardcover. Signed by Author. ROOTS. THE SAGA OF AN AMERICAN FAMILY. Presentation Copy. Early Trade Edition with a very warm full page presentation inscribed by Haley on the ffe. dated 11 / 11 / 76: "Paul Jones. Kunta's family wishes the very warm best to you and your family! - Alex Haley". 8vo. 587 pp. A near fine copy in original 1/4 black and bronze cloth covered boards gilt lettered at the spine in a very good dustwrapper with a closed tear at the bottom of the rear panel. Acknowledged more as a work of the imagination today rather than strict scholarship, Roots was the publishing sensation of the 1970's & remains the most important 20th century literary event in black literature. It was adapted into the hugely popular, 12-hour television miniseries, ROOTS, in 1977 [The first ever TV miniseries], & a 14-hour sequel, Roots: The Next Generations, in 1979.

Description:
Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, 1976. First state dust jacket. Near fine.. Inscribed first edition of the famed epic of the African diaspora, warmly presented by Haley in the year of publication. ROOTS is a saga of dislocation and strength in the face of brutality, reckoning with the complexities of ancestry in the African diaspora caused by the transatlantic slave trade. It begins in 1750 on the coast of The Gambia, West Africa, tracing the lives of multiple generations up to the birth of Haley himself. Michael Eric Dyson explains what ROOTS represented to the descendants of slaves in the United States: "No longer were we genealogical nomads [...] Haley wrote black folk into the book of American heritage and gave us the confidence to believe that we could find our forebears even as he shared his own" ("Haley's Comet"). The 1977 television adaptation was a major cultural event, with an audience of nearly half the American population (NEW YORK TIMES). A triumph of the archives and an… Read More

Description:
Garden City: Doubleday, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/very good. Contemporary signed presentation copy, and it's a good association, inscribed in ink, "September 1976. Dinah Shore, lovely, gracious lady - from our family to your family! Sincerely, Alex Haley." Some storage unit mustiness, else near fine in a very good dustjacket. This is Haley's quest for his genealogical history, starting in 1750 (contrast today when "roots" means the Church of the Magic Moonbeam tracing its origins all the way back to 2004). And Roots was a ‘just what it needed' contribution to America's bicentennial, historically enlightening and emotionally rewarding. It won a well-deserved Pulitzer Prize and, in 1977, it became the prototype television documentary miniseries, winning 9 Emmys.
