Advance Reading CopyAlex Haley. Roots. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1976. . Uncorrected proof that precedes the First edition. 569 pages. ARCs, or advance review copies, are produced privately by publishers and distributed prior to the official release date of the First edition of the book. Because ARCs may not have been put through the entire editing process, the copy will often differ slightly from the final edition of the book. Does not include subtitle “The Saga of an American Family”. Pages are copied hand-numbered. Paper wraps. Very rare uncorrected proof of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel.
Roots tells the intergenerational story of an enslaved man and the legacy of his descendants. The groundbreaking novel enjoyed over 40 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list, and its cultural impact was solidified with the release of the book’s television adaption in 1977. Crease to bottom right corner of front cover. 1 ½ x 2” stain to upper left edge of back cover. Light foxing to bottom right corner of title page. Very good.
