Days and Nights. Konstantine SIMONOV, Joseph Barnes.

Days and Nights

Simon and Schuster, 1945. First American Edition, 1st Printing. Cloth. In protective overwrap. Contemporary newspaper review of this book is laid inside copyright page and has discolored that page somewhat, otherwise fine. This is a first American edition of Simonov's novel of Russia's recent victory over Germany in World War II. Fascinatingly, this was published between the great war and the Cold War, so the American blurbs praising the novel and its Soviet patriotism have an odd chumminess to them that wouldn't be seen again between these nations for some time. Very good / very good. Item #311
