Fallada, Hans ~ Wolf Among Wolves : The Scarce First Issue With The Original William Kermode Wrapper
Putnam, London : 1938
The First UK printing published by Putnam, London in 1938. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. Light pushing at the spine ends. The gilt titling remains bright. A couple of tiny spots of wear to the lower front edge and spine tip. Free from inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. A little nicked and rubbed with a short closed tear at the foot of the front panel and a faint stain at the head of the upper rear spine fold. Some toning and fading to the spine with some age related markings but the William Kermode ('K') lithographed illustration on the front cover remains very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. One of the author's key titles translated by Philip Owens. There has been a resurgence of interest in Hans Fallada in recent years with many of his titles being republished. A very scarce title with such attributes. This being only the second copy we have handled.
