Fine in Very Good jacket. 8vo. Athens: Ohio University Press, 1977. First edition. 8vo. Cloth binding, 310 pp. Translated from the Yiddish by Bernard Martin. David Bergelson (1886-1952) has long been recognized as one of the greatest prose stylists in Yiddish literature of the twentieth century. Before his execution during the purge of Russian Jewish writers and intellectuals carried through in the last years of Joseph Stalin's dictatorship, he produced a body of writing that made him a first-rank figure in the world of Jewish letters. This novel is presented for the first time in English. It was originally written in 1913 and is considered his finest work. Dust jacket has rubbing, edge wear and an internally-repaired chip at corner. Fine in very good dust jacket, protected with an archival-quality mylar cover.
