New York: Atheneum, 1990. First edition and first printing. Hardcover. 209 pages. Review copy with laid in slip and publisher sheet. National Book Award winning novel about the slave trade. Despite Johnson's popularity with both critics and readers this book had a relatively small first printing. A near fine copy in paper covered boards with a cloth spine with some slight bumping to the spine ends and a slight lean to the spine and in a near fine dust jacket with the same slight bumping to the spine ends. Signed by Johnson on the title page.
