Nigger: An Autobiography

New York: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1964.

First edition. Signed by Dick Gregory on front free endpaper, inscribed "To Jay and Benita my Jewish customers To you from Dick Gregory." 224 pp. Original white paper and black cloth, contrasting black and white spine lettering. Good+ with staining to cloth, reading smudges and a few small stains throughout text, in Good+ unclipped dust jacket, toned, with a few tears along edges, nick in spine panel, staining to bottom of front panel, front flap creased.

An immediate bestseller by the late African-American comedian, writer, and outspoken activist, chronicling his unprecedented crossover comedy success at a time when the Civil Rights movement he participated in was still developing and unfolding in the midst of a strong backlash. Its title was controversial even when the book was released. True to form Gregory made it funny and poignant even in this book's dedication: "Dear Momma -- Wherever you are, if ever you hear the word 'nigger' again, remember they are advertising my book."
