About This Item

London: Secker & Warburg. FIRST UK EDITION. The book has mild pushing to spine tips and a small single penned name to upper front paste down. Bright crimson unfaded top stain. The wrapper has a little soiling to the rear cover with a very small chip to upper edge of rear cover. Light browning to spine. Overall a near fine copy. This one is particularly rare as it is signed by the author without dedication to the title page.  The novel is the first book of Grass's Danziger Trilogie (Danzig Trilogy). It is widely regarded as the author's masterpiece. Adapted to the big screen in 1979 to critical acclaim. This title is particularly rare to find signed.   . Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1962.

Synopsis

Acclaimed as the greatest German novel written since the end of World War II, The Tin Drum is the autobiography of thirty-year-old Oskar Matzerath who has lived through the long Nazi nightmare and who, as the novel begins, is being held in a mental institution. Willfully stunting his growth at three feet for many years, wielding his tin drum and piercing scream as anarchistic weapons, he provides a profound yet hilarious perspective on both German history and the human condition in the modern world.
