Jazz. By Toni Morrison. First Trade Edition, First Printing. Knopf. New York, 1992.

$50.00

Toni Morrison defined American literature in the late 20th century. She is without question one of the greatest authors of all time. Her works challenge readers to address harsh realities and changing perspectives, but with magic and grace and intimacy. For her contributions, Morrison was awarded the most prestigious literary awards, including the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Nobel Prize in Literature. In this volume, Jazz, her brilliance is on full display with rich characterization and a historically situated plot. Set in during the 1920s and the Harlem Renaissance, Jazz incorporates musicality, Black history, and historical events into one of Morrison’s best works. It is the second installment of her loosely defined trilogy on Black history–the first installment was Beloved, and the third Paradise. Jazz was cited as a major contributor to her Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993. It remains one of her most popular novels.

This first trade edition is in fine condition. In the original black cloth boards, very nearly fine with only fading to edges. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, fine. Price clipped.

A fine first trade edition of Jazz.
