About this Item: H. Fast, New York, 1951. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 363 p. ; 21 cm. A first edition first printing. Accused of treason for not "naming names" before the House Un-American Activities Committee, Fast was sentenced to three months in prison. While there he began work on this novel, which he had to self-publish. Probably sold through leftist publications, this first edition, first printing is quite rare. (This copy purchased from the estate of a local communist). This copy is very good, except for a stain to the top of the spine. I have listed it without a dust jacket, but the ragged remains of a jacket are now protected in mylar. There is no spine to the jacket, but the line drawing of a bound Spartacus on the front cover is intact. Seller Inventory # 011177
