New York: D. Appleton-Century Company, 1934.

Price: $55.00

Hardcover. First American edition. Translated from the Norwegian by Trygve M. Ager. Fine in spine-faded, about very good dustwrapper with internal repair with brown paper and some rubbing (with art by Celonike Wilkins). A novel about two very different college friends who enjoy the prosperity brought about by Norway's neutrality during the war by a Norwegian author who caused a brief sensation in the American literary world with the publication of his novel *The Great Hunger* in 1919, and was lauded as the most important Scandinavian writer since Ibsen. He was so critically admired that a book of critiques by James Branch Cabell, John Galsworthy, Joseph Hergesheimer, and Cecil Roberts, with a frontispiece portrait of the author by Kahlil Gibran, was published in 1920. Scarce in jacket.
