Song of Solomon.

Item Number: 895

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1977.

First edition of the author’s third book. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by Toni Morrison on the title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear. A very nice example.

"A stunningly beautiful book . . . I would call the book poetry, but that would seem to be denying its considerable power as a story. Whatever name you give it, it's full of magnificent people, each of them complex and multilayered, even the narrowest of them narrow in extravagant ways" (Anne Tyler).
