About this Item: Alliance Book Corporation, New York, 1941. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. 749 pages, cloth, very good. No dust jacket, just the DJ flap, an excerpt of which notes: "OUT OF THE NIGHT is a ruthless autobiography. The author makes no apologies. He does not spare himself." From Wikipedia: "In 1926, Krebs entered the United States illegally and settled in California. He spent 38 months in San Quentin State Prison for attempting to murder a merchant navy seaman during a brawl, then was deported to Germany in 1929. He worked as a seaman until 1934, when he was arrested and tortured, and acted as a witness for prosecution in a trial that brought to the conviction of a fellow German seaman accused of treason. In 1938, the settled in the United States once again - this time under his most famous alias, Jan Valtin - where he published the highly publicized autobiography Out of the Night. In the book he described in detail the actions he supposedly had carried on as a secret agent of the Soviet GPU. The 1926 attempted murder was described by Krebs/Valtin as a GPU operation. The book received great critical acclaim. A 1940 review for the Saturday Review of Literature reads: "No other books more clearly reveals the aid which Stalin gave to Hitler before he won power". As a result, he Valtin/Krebs was invited to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee as regards Soviet secret activities in Europe.". Seller Inventory # 8872

About this Item: Garden City Publishing Co., Inc, Garden City, New York, 1942. Hardcover. Original edition. Navy blue cloth/boards; blind-stamp title on front; gilt title on spine. vi, 749 pp. with no illus. Three pieces of ephemera tucked in: a receipt from the Avon Inn Hotel (Avon-by-the-Sea, NJ) for a week's stay in August 1943 for John W. Rush, a receipe brochure of "New Taste Thrills" ideas of things to make with Edgemont Crackers, and a bw photo of a very pretty young woman (no identification/date). A bestseller in 1941, selected by the Book of the Month Club for a special edition and described by Book of the Month Club News as: . . . full of sensational revelations and interspersed with episodes of daring, of desperate conflict, of torture, and of ruthless conspiracy . . . It is, first of all, an autobiography the like of which has seldom been. The son of a seafaring father, Richard Julius Herman Krebs, a.k.a. Jan Valtin, came of age as a bicycle messenger during a maritime rebellion. His life as an intimate insider account of the dramatic events of 192 s and 1930s, where he rose both within the ranks of the Communist Party and on the Gestapo hit list. Known for his honesty and incredible memory, Krebs dedicated his life to the Communist Party, rising to a position as head of maritime, organizing worldwide for the Comintern, only to flee the Party and Europe to evade his own comrades' attempts to kill him. As a professional revolutionary, agitator, spy and would-be assassin, Krebs traveled the globe from Germany to China, India to Sierra Leon, Moscow to the United States where a botched assassination attempt landed him a stint in San Quentin. From his spellbinding account of artful deception to gain release from a Nazi prison and his work as a double-agent within the Gestapo, to his vivid depiction of a Communist Party fraught with intrigue and subterfuge, Krebs gives an unflinching portrayal of the internal machinations of both parties. Writing at age 36 under the name Jan Valtin, Krebs lays bare a young life filled with idealism and devotion disillusionment and loss in a world full of revolutionary promise gone immeasurably wrong. An exciting, real book without a trace of unnecessary melodrama. (H.G.Wells). Good. Clean, tight copy with general shelf/age wear but no glaring defects. Former owner's name (Mary Lou Cull) on ffep.

About this Item: Alliance Book Corporation, New York, 1941. First edition of Valtin's bestselling autobiographical narrative. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author, "To Polly and June _____ with admiration and cordial fond wishes from Jan Valtin June 1, 1941." Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Jacket art by George Salter. A bestseller in 1941, described as". . . full of sensational revelations and interspersed with episodes of daring, of desperate conflict, of torture, and of ruthless conspiracy . . . It is, first of all, an autobiography the like of which has seldom been." The son of a seafaring father, Richard Julius Herman Krebs, a.k.a. Jan Valtin, came of age as a bicycle messenger during a maritime rebellion. His life as an intimate insider account of the dramatic events of 1920’s and 1930s, where he rose both within the ranks of the Communist Party and on the Gestapo hit list. Known for his honesty and incredible memory, Krebs dedicated his life to the Communist Party, rising to a position as head of maritime, organizing worldwide for the Comintern, only to flee the Party and Europe to evade his own comrade’s attempts to kill him. As a professional revolutionary, agitator, spy and would-be assassin, Krebs traveled the globe from Germany to China, India to Sierra Leon, Moscow to the United States where a botched assassination attempt landed him a stint in San Quentin. From his spellbinding account of artful deception to gain release from a Nazi prison and his work as a double-agent within the Gestapo, to his vivid depiction of a Communist Party fraught with intrigue and subterfuge, Krebs gives an unflinching portrayal of the internal machinations of both parties. Writing at age 36 under the name Jan Valtin, Krebs lays bare a young life filled with idealism and devotion—disillusionment and loss—in a world full of revolutionary promise gone immeasurably wrong."An exciting, real book without a trace of unnecessary melodrama" (H.G.Wells).
