Condition: Fine

New York: Pocket Books, 1949. First edition thus. Paperback. Fine. Pristine. Square, bright, tight, clean. Probably unread. No creases of any kind. Abridged edition, edited and with an introduction by Fred Renfield. First paperback edition of the wildly successful Henry Holt first edition. Great Emil Weiss cover art. A beautiful copy of the story of musical genius Jean-Christophe Krafft. Originally published in French, author Rolland won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915.

Jean-Christophe is a novel sequence, written in the "bildungsroman" fashion, in ten volumes by Romain Rolland published between 1904 and 1912, for which he received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915. It was translated into English by Gilbert Cannan. The first four volumes are sometimes grouped as Jean-Christophe, the next three as Jean-Christophe à Paris, and the last three as La fin du voyage ("Journey's End").
