Condition: Good/Good

Oslo: J W. Cappelens Forlag, 1949. First Edition. Boards. Good/Good. First Edition. 182, [1] pages. 5 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches. Thick pressboard covers with embossed title and author name. Original printed dust jacket. Dj is worn, browned at spine, and with soiling. Text in Norwegian (?). Untrimmed. Boards. The first edition of a biography that describes the "unrevised, impassioned diary of an Oslo underground leader, written while imprisoned at Mollergt 19 in Oslo in 1944. Transferred to Germany, he wend down with the Westphalen. This daily record of his thoughts and the prison routine had been pricked on rolls of toilet paper and blown through a ventilator under his cell. It falls into two distinct parts - the first, covering his 78 days in solitary confinement, revelas a struggle against despair and insanity ... the second covers the remainder of his imprisonment, the semi-starved prisoners' preoccupation with food, super-sensitivity towards his cellmates. A moving human document but dated." (kirkus review).
