Vagabonds [First Edition, Later Dust Jacket]

New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. A Very Good or better copy of the uncommon first U.S. American edition of the Norwegian author's novel in a not quite Very Good example of a later dust jacket. A pioneer of psychological literature who Isaac Bashevis Singer described as "...the father of the modern school of literature in his every aspect—his subjectiveness, his fragmentariness, his use of flashbacks, his lyricism. The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun." Also praising him highly, Thomas Mann declared him to be a "...descendant of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Friedrich Nietzsche." Knut Hamsun won the 1920 Nobel Prize in Literature. Copies of this first American edition are rather uncommon, and copies in any early dust jacket are quite so. Very good / not quite very good. Item #3375

Price: $95.00
