About This Item

New York: Random House, 1970. Very good plus in very good dust jacket.. First edition of this memoir by one of the founders of the Black Panthers, with a focus on his trial as one of the "Chicago 8." This powerful and harrowing memoir was written during Bobby Seale's time in prison as one of the "Chicago 8" defendants. Due to Seale's protests against the blatant racism he and the seven other men faced during the trial, the judge ordered him to be bound and gagged for the duration - the shocking image of the restrained Seale adorns both the dust jacket and the binding of the book. An important firsthand account of the early days of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, and a clear manifesto for the organization's stance. 8.5'' x 5.75''. Original brown cloth binding with metallic red embellishment and spine lettering. Original unclipped ($6.95) color pictorial dust jacket, designed by Bob Antler with illustration by Howard Brodie. Fore-edge machine deckle. Jacket with light edgewear and spotting;.75" closed tear to rear joint. Binding spine ends lightly bumped. Light scattered foxing to edges. A sharp copy.
