The Marriage Feast

London: Chatto & Windus, 1955. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in a Very Good dust jacket, the third appearance of of any of Lagerkvist's books to appear in English (following "Barabbas" and "The Dwarf"), and being the first appearance of any collection of the author's short stories in English in book form. [The first American edition of this volume was not issued until 1973, a surprising delay given that Lagerkvist won the 1951 Nobel Prize in Literature.] The volume is bound in deep blue cloth and shows a thin line of sunning to top edge. The dust jacket shows general wear and a few tiny tears and chips, along with some differential toning to the rear wrapper, three small tape repairs to he verso, as well as a tide mark affecting the rear panel's spine edge and a small portion of the rear panel. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this copy is the nicest we ever have seen. No comparable Swedish edition was issued. SCARCE. Fine / very good. Item #3089
