About this Item: Random House, New York, 1938. Very handsomely bound in finely wovely gleaming black cloth spine stamped brightly in gold. And cinnamon cloth-covered boards stamped with a gilded bird. Very clean and tight throughout; with some shadows of glue transfer to the hinges of the paste-downs. In a very good pictorial dust jacket with the original price of $2.75 at the top of the inside front flap. With a list of notable recent and forthcoming Random House Fiction on the rear panel. Chipping and small tears to the top and bottom of the spine ends. With a faint, vertical crease along the jacket spine. Overall, a very attractive and collectible copy of this splendid novel which was made into a fine movie directed by Sydney Pollack and starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. Blixen is best known for Out of Africa, an account of her life while living in Kenya, and for one of her stories, Babette's Feast, both of which have been adapted into Academy Award-winning motion pictures. She is also noted for her Seven Gothic Tales, particularly in Denmark. Blixen was considered several times for the Nobel Prize in Literature. (Wikipedia) Out of Africa is a memoir by the Danish author Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke. The book, first published in 1937, recounts events of the seventeen years when Blixen made her home in Kenya, then called British East Africa. The book is a lyrical meditation on Blixen’s life on her coffee plantation, as well as a tribute to some of the people who touched her life there. It provides a vivid snapshot of African colonial life in the last decades of the British Empire. Blixen wrote the book in English and then rewrote it in Danish. The book has sometimes been published under the author's pen name, Isak Dinesen. (Wikipedia) First Edition with "First Edition" stated on the copyright page. Seller Inventory # 525
