Cane

by Toomer, Jean

Cane is considered the first novel of the Harlem Renaissance, and today is revered as a classic. This collection was originally published in 1923, sold 500 copies, and then disappeared until it was re-discovered in the 1960s (two years after the author's death). Considered ‘High Modernist’ the novel is composed of vignettes including narrative prose, poetry, and dialogue, moving in a circular fashion to combine life experiences of black in the rural south and urban north.  

First Edition Identification

The First edition of Cane was published by Boni and Liveright in 1923, in a print run of just 500.

New York: University Place Press, 1967. Hardcover. Fine. Stated third printing, but more likely the third edition. Fine, lacking the dust jacket. A nice reproduction of the first, and certainly one of the most important books of the Harlem Renaissance.
