The Fire Next Time

James Baldwin


The Dial Press, New York, 1963. First Edition. Hardcover with Dust Jacket. 128pp., 5.75 x 8.25 inches

Very Good. Dust jacket shows mild rubbing and wear at edges and corners, with 2 cm closed tear to upper corner and 1 cm chip at lower corner of the rear. Interior pages toned due to aged. Boards near fine. 

Essays as pertinent as during their original publication amidst the emerging civil rights movement. A well-kept first edition copy of Baldwin's urgent and acclaimed volume.
