About this Item

First Impression of Sebald's first book published in an English-language edition, translated from the German by Michael Hulse. 8vo: [8],237,[1]pp, profusely illustrated with black and white, unlabeled photographs (as are most of Sebald's texts) in a documentary style. Publisher's blue cloth-effect, paper-covered boards, spine stamped in gilt, illustrated dust jacket. A stunning copy, virtually pristine, tight, square and apparently unread, uncompromised in every way, save for the jacket's price-clipped front flap. Presented the Berlin Literature Prize, the Literatur Nord Prize, and the Johannes Bobrowski Medal. Sebald's narrator recounts the life stories of four characters, all of whom are German emigrants, to England and the United States. The stories touch on the themes of memory (and the compulsion to obliterate it), mourning and melancholia, trauma, and feelings of foreignness. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1492
