DELORIA, Jr., Vine
We Talk, You Listen
(NY), Macmillan, (1970). The galley sheets of this powerful polemic by the best-known spokesman for Native American causes to emerge in the late Sixties. His second book, after the highly praised Custer Died for Your Sins, and one of the early books of what has come to be called the Native American Renaissance. Roughly 60 7-1/2" x 12" sheets, printed on rectos only. String-tied (shoelace, to be specific) at the top, in blue cardstock covers printing only the title and publisher (no author). The rear cover has a partially removed label. Near fine. The galley's lack the book's appendix; casual inspection revealed only the change in the recurring spelling of one name (Foreman became Forman). Exceedingly scarce: the format suggests that only a tiny handful would have been produced, each of them assembled by hand. [#032664] $300
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
