WICKER, Tom. A Time to Die.

(New York, NY): Quadrangle / The New York Times Book Co., [1975].  First edition.  Octavo.  viii, 342 pages. A gripping first-hand account of the Attica prison riot of 1971.  N 1971, the inmates of Attica revolted, took hostages, and forced the authorities into four days of desperate negotiation. The rebels demanded — and were granted — the presence of a group of observers to act as unofficial mediators. Tom Wicker, then the Associate Editor of the New York Times, was one of those summoned. This is his account.  The volume is illustrated with 26 photographic plates, this copy is accompanied by 19 (of the 26 images) photographic prints.  The prints measuring approx. 20.5cm by 25.5cm are in very good condition.  The volume is in near fine condition, map of Attica prison on end papers, in a very good dust jacket with some light wear to edges.
