Native Son

Sydney: Angus and Robertson, 1960.

Price: $250.00

Hardcover. First Australian edition. Very good with cocked spine, owner's bookplate, owner's signature, and foxing to endpapers and page edges in good dustwrapper with long tears and tape repairs to spine, age-toning to back panel, but a bright, lovely front panel. Along with Ellison's *Invisible Man* and *Baldwin's Go Tell It On the Mountain*, one of the indisputable mid-century classics of African-American literature.
