Isaac Bashevis Singer
A special Limited Edition and true First US Edition/First Printing preceding the trade edition. This copy is in unread Very Fine condition and is SIGNED by author and Nobel Laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer;
This is Nobel Prize-winner Isaac Singer's 10th collection of short stories. The twenty stories are variously set in the present, in pre-World War II Poland, in the netherworld and even at the time of the biblical flood. They are seemingly autobiographical and often allude to the Holocaust and the painful rootlessness of exile.
This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and features gilded, sewn-in pages with a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
