THE PROMISED LAND: Memoirs of Shmuel Dayan

London: Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1961. First Edition. Hardcover. "Shmuel Dayan was one of the early Zionist pioneers in Palestine. He went there from Russia in 1908, ambitious to prove himself equal to the Arab labourers at whose side he worked in the fields [...] In this account of his more than fifty years of agricultural and social pioneering can be seen the development of a new society, a new-old country, a way of life." Introduced, edited, and arranged by Yael Dayan. Translated from the Hebrew by Sidney Lightman. Includes 20 illustrations. This copy is inscribed and dated by Yael Dayan on the front flyleaf. Octavo. Original burgundy cloth binding, with gilt titles. Minor offsetting from the publisher's cancel on the copyright page. The dust jacket is price-clipped, with some nibbling by silverfish along the extremities of the rear panel, and a small patch of label residue to the front panel; otherwise very good. Very good / Very good. Item #66537
