Random House, New York, 1952, First Edition, Stated First Printing, First State Dust Jacket, with AB at the bottom of copyright page and price of $3.95 on front flap of dust jacket, as called for. Ellison’s stunning first novel was the winner of the National Book Award for Fiction in 1953; a ‘Burgess 99’ book, Invisible Man has become a classic of American literature and a 20th Century high spot. With Richard Wright’s Native Son, the novel stands as one of the great achievements of African American writing of the post-Harlem Renaissance era. In publisher’s beige and black cloth with only slight rubbing to the white spine titles, else an about fine copy, tight, clean and unmarked; in the first state dust jacket with striking E. McKnight Kauffer cover illustration, nicks and mild creasing to spine ends, light wear to folds and extremities, else a respectable very good+, now in mylar sleeve. A very nice copy of the scarce first printing of an American classic. J2009
