Book Description Penguin Books Ltd., Harmondsworth, Middlesex, England, UK, 1965. Mass Market Paperback. Condition: Used-Acceptable. Michael Ayrton (Cover Drawing) (illustrator). Reprinted: 1965. 252 pp. A perfectly acceptable reading copy. Ex-Libris copy. Moderate foxing on page edges. Water stain on back cover and side and bottom edges. Top left corner of back cover is missing. Synopsis: This novel by the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, 1957, is a work of extraordinary power. When 'The Plague' was first published in French, the Times Literary Supplement wrote: ¿ No doubt translations will soon appear. Then it may be that the book will be recognised as the most important which has appeared in France since the impressive novels of M. Malraux.¿ The subject is the devastation of the town of Oran in our own times. Through the eyes of Dr. Rieux the progress of the plague is described with a dramatic detail that calls to mind Defoe. But Dr. Rieux¿s narrative embraces more than local calamity. His is a humane and courageous philosophy of life. In quarantine from the rest of the world, the citizens of Oran are thrown back upon their own resources. While the procrastinating town authority tries over many months to cope with a crisis beyond its competence, the mood of the citizens changes from disbelief to terror, then to hope, indifference, and finally relief. For each one the tragedy of isolation and death has a personal aspect. Dr. Rieux himself works day and night under the strain of being forcibly parted from his wife whom he knows to be dying. Among his friends are Tarrou, an old fighter against the injustices of the world, who is glad of this last opportunity to devote his life to the struggle; Rambert, the journalist, who learns wisdom through his vain attempts to escape back to Paris; the faithful clerk, Joseph Grand, who is forever recasting the first sentence of the perfect book he means to write ; and Cottard, the only man for whom the epidemic is a blessing, because it postpones his arrest. From their companionship in suffering arises a new ideal of human sainthood, but without religion. In the face of disaster, the toiling dignity of man is revealed. In Tarrou¿s words to Dr. Rieux: ¿ This epidemic has taught me nothing new, except that I must fight it at your side. Each of us has the plague within him; no one, no one on earth, is free from it. We must keep endless watch on ourselves lest in a careless moment we breathe in somebody¿s face and fasten the infection on him.¿ Seldom has a fateful theme been more compellingly handled.

Book Description The Modern Library, New York, 1960. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Modern Library #109. "First Printing" - stated on the copyright page. The dustjacket lists "405 Outstanding Books.", on the verso, and dates from Spring, 1961. According to Henry Toledano (Modern Library Price Guide 1917-2000), the correct first issue jacket lists "403.". In his judgment, a particular jacket can qualify for 'first issue' status if it is no more than three numbers away (i.e. higher) than this, so the present jacket with '405' is an acceptable match for the book. The book, with binding type 8 and grey Kent endpapers is very good plus. It has a bit of rubbing to the spine tips, a small faint stain to the top edge and another on p. 177, and a very slight forward slant, otherwise fine - clean, tight, sharp-cornered. The jacket, with the rear panel in style "j", used by the ML from 1960-3, is very good plus as well, with mild wear to the edges and folds (mostly rubbing, but also a few tiny chips and short closed tears. There is a superficial crease mark near the top of the rear panel, and some age darkening to the rear fold and left side of the rear panel. The jacket is not creased otherwise, and is unfaded and unclipped ($1.95). Seller Inventory # 898

Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1948. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Jean Carlu - Jacket Design (illustrator). 1st Edition. First US edition, first printing ("First American Edition" stated on the copyright page). A near fine book, with the rose top stain pristine, if perhaps a bit muted. The spine tips are a bit softened and the black cloth covers have some faint spotted areas (more like shadows, really) that disappear as the book is held at different angles - this could be part of the design and I am not sure would show up in a photograph - else the book is fine: crisp and clean with four sharp corners and no internally foxing, offsetting or other marking. The dustjacket is very good plus, with some rubbing to the edges and corners, a small, shallow chip at the lower edge of the front panel and a couple of smaller ones and a short closed tear at the top edge of the rear panel. The spine seems unfaded save for the red title and the flaps are not creased or price-clipped (the original $3.00 price remains). A nice copy of a scarce and important book. Photographs available on request, of course!. Seller Inventory # 6411
