Description:
New York: Dial Press, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Printing of this "child's story for adults," written in Black English from the perspective of Baldwin's seven-year-old nephew. Illustrated by Yoran Cazac. Royal 8vo (242 x 185mm): 96pp, with color illustrations throughout. Publisher's pictorial boards (repeating dust jacket design), illustrated dust jacket priced $6.95. An exceptional example (spine ends lightly bumped), tightly bound and clean throughout. Since the Sixties, Baldwin had faced rejection by Black militants, who opposed his integrationist views, while, at the same time, the mainstream media panned his later works. Feeling ostracized and depressed, he turned inward, drawing comfort from his large family, particularly his brother, David. One fruit of this isolation and introspection was this children's book. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable mylar… Read more

Description:
New York: The Dial Press, 1976. First American Edition. Octavo. (26 cm. x 19 cm.) 96 pp. Illustrated dust jacket. Likewise illustrated boards. Light sticker residue to upper right corner of jacket. Clipped lower corner front flap with price intact. Minor chip to top of jacket spine. Very Good. "Little Man Little Man" is a collaboration between writer, James Baldwin and artist, Yoran Cazac. Close friends, Baldwin chose Cazac to illustrate this coming of age story of two Black boys growing up on the streets of Harlem. Baldwin's narrative prose, uses the present lyrical tense of childhood, giving the words a dynamic, rhythmic, intensity. The children and their world, are drawn by Cazac as if they were quick, colorful sketches, constantly moving as if to music. The story is of "TJ" and "WT" -- poor, urban, Black boys who play kid's games in the same streets where they witness the world's brutality against people like themselves. And yet, "Little Man Little… Read more
