Svevo, Italo CONFESSIONS OF ZENO
London & New York: Putnam, (1930). First U.K. edition, first printing. Translation from the Italian by Beryl de Zoete from LA CONSCIENZA DI ZENO (1923). Very good: spine slightly slanted, foxing to page edges and scattered within, darkening to spine and extremities, wear to edges, offsetting to endsheets, tiny bump to upper front edge; lacking endpapers.
The Italian novelist and playwright's most celebrated work, "dealing with the self-revelations of a nicotine addict, is considered one of the greatest examples of European experimental modernist writing."--kirjasto.
