Hamsun, Knut LOOK BACK ON HAPPINESS
New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., (1940). First U.S. edition. Translated from the Norwegian by Paula Wiking. Hardcover. Very good: age-darkening to the textured green cloth binding, abrasion to upper edge, offsetting to front endsheets; in an age-darkened, lightly edge-nibbled dust jacket with a tiny nick and attendant rumpling to spine crown, tiny chips at flap folds.
Originally published as DEN SISTE GLĘDE in 1912 by the Norwegian novelist, dramatist, poet, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920, and author of HUNGER and THE GROWTH OF THE SOIL.
