About this Item

First Edition of the author's first book. Inscribed by the author on front free end paper. Bound in navy cloth, with gilt author initials on front board and lavender title panel gilt lettered on spine. Cover has some scuffing and age toning but is otherwise clean. Binding is shaken at the front cover joint but intact. Sold As IS. Interior is clean and unmarked. Lacking the dust jacket. Wouk was in the U.S Navy following the attack on Pearl Harbor and served in the Pacific Theater during World War II, an experience he later characterized as educational: "I learned about machinery, I learned how men behaved under pressure, and I learned about Americans." During off-duty hours aboard ship he started writing a novel, Aurora Dawn, or, The True history of Andrew Reale, containing a faithful account of the Great Riot, together with the complete texts of Michael Wilde's oration and Father Stanfield's sermon.
