Description:
Harper & Brothers, NY, 1940. 1st edition. hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Wright received a Guggenheim Fellowship to complete this novel, an immediate best seller and portrayal of Black youth in the US. The publishers (Harpers) issued the book in one dust jacket and turned around, quickly it appears, and issued this stated first edition in the more important cover with a vignette. "Set in Chicago in the 1930s, Wright's powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in America." [Pub. Info] The dust jacket has minor chipping to the top of spine. Illustrated front cover. There is a protective mylar cover. STATED 1ST EDITION. (with, by far, the preferred dust jacket.)

Harper & Brothers, 1940. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Fine. First edition, first state (navy blue cloth, not grey). Includes new facsimile dust jacket. Minor wear to corners, front free endpaper removed, rear endpaper just beginning to split along hinge, but binding holding tightly. 1940 Hard Cover. xi, [1], 359, [1] pp. 8vo. Introduction by Dorothy Canfield Fisher. "Right from the start, Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail. It could have been for assault or petty larceny; by chance, it was for murder and rape. Native Son tells the story of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panic. Set in Chicago in the 1930s, Wright's powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in America.
