A Collection of Ten Books Signed By Baraka, including Black Music, Tales, The System of Dante's Hell, Home, The Dead Lecturer, Black Magic Poetry, Selected Poetry, Raise Rage Rays Raze, Selected Plays and Prose, and Three Books
A collection of ten books by Amiri Baraka, all inscribed by Baraka to African-American archivist and broadcaster Harrison Ridley, Jr. This is a nice collection of inscribed titles, including some older Leroi Jones titles. Unfortunately there are condition issues with many of the books, and conditions range from fair to very good. Many books contain Ridley's customary ownership stamps on front pages, and numbers on bottom of the pages in marker. Titles include Black Music (first edition, hardcover, good with stamps and number and some cocking to spine in very good dust jacket), Tales (Evergreen paperback, very good with stamps and numbers present), The System of Dante's Hell (Evergreen paperback, very good with some foxing to cover), Home (Apollo paperback, very good minus with some soiling, foxing, stamps and number), The Dead Lecturer (Evergreen paperback, good plus, some soiling to cover, stamps, number and wear), Black Magic Poetry (paperback, stamps and number else very good), Selected Poetry (Morrow paperback, very good minus with some soiling and staining to outer pages, minor bending and crease in spine), Raise Race Rays Raze (first hardcover edition, second printing, fair to good with bending to boards and soiling to cover, as well as stamps and number), Selected Plays and Prose (Morrow paperback, fair to good with tearing to front of cover) and Three Books by Imamu Amiri Baraka (good with some tanning to pages, bending to cover and signature on top of pages). Baraka inscribed these to Ridley in 1982, except one title which was inscribed in 1983. N° de ref. de la librería ABE-4928822871
