Hardcover. Seventh printing of the American edition. Translated from the Norwegian by W.J. Alexander Worster and C. Archer. Spine toned, scattered foxing on the board, near very good lacking the dust jacket. Inscribed by the author: "To Joseph Wilborn Poole with compliments from Johan Bojer .15.4.20." Bojer was 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.
