AUF DEN MARMORKLIPPEN. Ernst Jünger, Ernst Juenger.

AUF DEN MARMORKLIPPEN. Hamburg: Hanseatische Verlagsanstalt, [1939]. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-156 [157] [158: blank] [159: list of Jünger's books] [160: ads], original dark blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in red and silver, top edge stained light blue. First edition, first printing. A famous utopian novel with hidden accusation of the Nazi terror. "... though its status as a classic of resistance to Nazism has been somewhat shaken by analysis of its broodingly passive austerity regarding political action -– [it] is a peculiarly resonant allegory of the destruction of a civilized country by an incursion of vandal-like conquerors." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 652. Translated into English by Stuart Hood as ON THE MARBLE CLIFFS (1947). Bloch (2002) 1630. Slight spine lean, hint of fading to spine, but a very good copy with bright cover stamping. (#140761).

Price: $150.00
