About This Item
The First UK Printing published by Secker and Warburg in 1928. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. Ghosting to the spine, spine folds and the lower boards as commonly encountered. The gilt titling remains bright. A little pushing at the spine ends. Slight splaying of the rear board. Mild toning and spotting to the text block. Mild offsetting and spotting to the end papers with very light spotting in places elsewhere due to the quality of the paper stock used. Free from inscriptions and erasures. A very small 'Times Book Club sticker' to the lower rear pastedown which has offset onto the verso of the rear end paper. The binding remains very tight. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. It bears the correct price of 7'6 net to the spine. Light toning to the spine and edges. Mild edge wear with loss at the spine ends and corner folds. Some splitting at the rear spine fold. The wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. The Nobel-Prize winning author's famous novella which was the basis for Luchino Visconti's 1971 Oscar-nominated movie starring Dirk Bogarde and a Benjamin Britten's opera. Very scarce to find with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
The novella Death in Venice was written by the German author Thomas Mann, and was first published in 1912 as Der Tod in Venedig. It was first published in English in 1925 as Death in Venice and Other Stories, translated by Kenneth Burke. W. H. Auden called it the definitive translation.
