Nigger Heaven.
London: Alfred A. Knopf, 1926 - Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Cloth slightly faded along the edges. A beautiful, clean, and fresh copy in the dust jacket. First UK edition, first impression. Originally published in the US in the same year. Van Vechten's novel of the Harlem renaissance has faced criticism for its title, but the author was in fact a supporter of African American equality and a friend of many Harlem Renaissance intellectuals. The text itself explores the issue of racism through the story of a young couple whose love is thwarted by contemporary social attitudes. A stunning copy, rare found in such nice condition. [Attributes: First Edition]
