About this Item

1st Printing. 300 pages. Published in 1987. The author's novel, published posthumously. One of the greatest novels of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Salvatore Satta's "Il giorno di giudizio" in a felicitous English translation. Masterpiece. The greatest Italian jurist of the 20th century, Satta also harbored literary ambitions and worked on his novel for more than thirty years. The manuscript was discovered among his papers after his death in 1975 and published in 1979. Its only equal among modern Italian novels is Giuseppi DiLampedusa's "The Leopard", also posthumously published (and made into his greatest film by Luchino Visconti). The novels have one striking resemblance: They are about the centuries-old way of life of a particular culture and society (Sicily in DiLampedusa's case, Sardinia in Satta's) and their inevitable demise with the coming of the Modern Age. "That improbable gift, for which one cannot be too thankful: A great European novel" (Susan Sontag). An absolute "must-have" title for Salvatore Satta collectors. This title is a great book. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A fine copy. ISBN 0374135290. Bookseller Inventory # 17776
