Price: $35.00

Publisher: New York, Grove Press, Inc.: 1968

Edition: First Edition Thus; First Printing

Seller ID: 15192

Condition: Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket


Book has only a suggestion of wear. Jacket has some small bumps and creases. This is a collection of short stories by LeRoi Jones who rather quickly changed his name to Amiri Baraka. This book is copyrighted by Grove Press in 1967, but has also the note First Evergreen Edition -- 1968. Evergreen was a division of Grove Press and I'm not sure if the Evergreen Edition is the first or if this is a special edition from the year after the original. Still a nice book and an important one. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 132 pages View more info
