Book Description New York: Farrar & Rinehart, 1933, 1933. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board in black, top edge dyed red. With the dust jacket. Cloth just a little rubbed and faded at extremities, spine faded. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with some light marks and spots and toned spine panel. First English language edition, first printing. The Child Manuela, based on its author's experiences at the strict boarding school Kaiserin-Augusta-Stift in Potsdam, was originally published in German in 1934. Dealing frankly with the subject of homosexuality among teenage girls, it was also made into a hit play and an important film, the first to depict lesbianism positively (though the story was originally conceived as a novel, the play and film appeared in 1930 and 31, before the novel was published). A very nice copy of this important book. Seller Inventory # 88883
