JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE NIGHT. Louis-Ferdinand Céline.

JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE NIGHT

New York: New Directions, 1958. Hardcover. Céline’s masterpiece, a literary symphony of cruelty and violence that hurtles through the improbable travels of the petit bourgeois (and largely autobiographical) antihero, Bardamu: from the trenches of World War I, to the African jungle, to New York, to the Ford Factory in Detroit, and finally to life in Paris as a failed doctor. Translated from the French by John H.P. Marks. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. In the uncommon dust jacket ($3.50) designed by Alvin Lustig and Quigley, which is a bit toned with some minor edgewear and a few tape repairs; else very good. Very good / Very good. Item #73390

Price: $250.00
