Die Blechtrommel, Katz und Maus, Hundejahre [The Tin Drum, Cat and Mouse, Dog Years].
Darmstadt: Hermann Luchterhand Verlag, 1959-1963. First German editions and true firsts of the author's classic Danzig Trilogy. Octavo, 3 volumes, original cloth. Each copy is signed by the author. Each are fine in near fine dust jackets. A very sharp set, uncommon signed. The Danzig Trilogy begins with the story of Oskar Matzerath and his determination to remain a child. He refuses to speak, only banging on his drum. The surreal chronology and characters give a nerve-wracking description of life under Nazi rule in World War II, and finally to postwar Germany in the 1950's. In 1979, The Tin Drum was adapted into a film which won the Palme d'Or, and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
