Description

Vintage Book - Published by Doubleday & Co. 1976 First Edition of "Roots" by Alex Haley. This 587 page, Pulitzer Prize winning novel is the monumental two-century drama of Kunta Kinte, the 16 year old boy abducted from his West African village and sold to a Virginia planter, and the six generations to follow - slaves and freedmen, farmers and blacksmiths, lumber mill workers, Pullman porters, lawyers and architects.

***Identifying 1st Edition- First Edition is stated on the copyright page. Boards are rust brown with gold lettering on a black spine. Book is 9.5 inches tall. Back of dust jacket has photo of author with hands in his pockets, and there are no reviews.
-The book club edition is smaller, and has gold boards. Because of its smaller dimensions, the book club edition has more pages (688 pages). The dust jacket features a different photo of the author on the back.

This hardcover book is in Very Good to Excellent pre-owned condition. Clean pages with no folds or marks. Slight yellow spotting on outside edges of pages-when closed. Cover, spine and binding are in excellent condition with some minor bending at top and bottom of spine. Spine is square and binding is tight. Dust cover has some yellowing and shelf wear. Please see all photos as part of description.

Wikipedia: Published in October 1976 amid significant advance expectations, Roots was immediately successful, garnering a slew of positive reviews and debuting at #5 of The New York Times Best Seller list (with The Times choosing to classify it as non-fiction). By mid-November, it had risen to the #1 spot on the list. The television adaptation of the book aired in January 1977, further fueling book sales. Within seven months of its release, Roots had sold over 1.5 million copies. Haley earned a Pulitzer Prize special award in 1977 for Roots. The television miniseries garnered many awards, including nine Emmys and a Peabody.
