Hardcover. First English edition. Translated from the Norwegian by Jessie Muir. Spine slightly sunned, else near fine in attractive near fine dustwrapper with splits at the bottom of the flap folds, and a later publisher's price sticker affixed to the front panel (7/6 on the spine). A novel 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. Very scarce in jacket.
