Description:
London: Jonathan Cape, (1950). Later printing but scarce in any early printing of the first edition. Translated from the German by Koestler's companion, the sculptor Daphne Hardy, who smuggled her translation to England from France, where Koestler had been interned during WWII. INSCRIBED BY KOESTLER on half-title page, "Arthur Koestler, being duly sworn, deposes and says, that Harold Granata is a shining exception among consuls, vice consuls and such, in as much as being human. London, September 19, 1951/ Arthur Koestler." Koestler had been granted permanent residence in the U.S. just a few weeks earlier; and Harold M. Granata was U.S. Vice Consul to London at the time. A fair copy foxed on endpapers and page edges and cloth at spine thinned in areas (old insect damage). In supplied, good to very good dust jacket (from the 11th printing). Scarce signed or inscribed.

Darkness at Noon is signed by Arthur Koestler on the front free endpaper. Each volume is very good in a very good dust jackets with some rubbing and wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. First printings are rare signed. Although there is no narrative connection between the books, Arthur Koestler declared his first three novels to be a thematic trilogy following the publication of the final installment, Arrival and Departure. Set in different eras, each novel explores the ethics and consequences of revolutionary politics and idealism, reflecting Koestler's growing disillusionment with the political environment of mid-20th century Europe. Published in 1939, Koestler's first novel, The Gladiators, used the portrayal of the slave uprising led by Thracian gladiator Spartacus in ancient Rome to examine the rise… Read More
