New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1944. First edition, a very early issue. 8vo, publisher's original brick red cloth lettered and decorated on the spine in gilt. In the original dustjacket. vii, 269, [1]. An especially fine copy for a book printed to war standards, internally very fine, the cloth and dustjacket just a touch mellowed along the edges. FIRST EDITION OF HERSEY'S FIRST NOVEL AND THE WINNER OF THE 1945 PULITZER PRIZE. A classic novel written after first hand experience in the invasion and occupation of Italy. It tells the story of an Italian-American officer in Sicily during World War II who wins the respect and admiration of the people of the town of Adano by helping them find a replacement for the town bell that the Fascists had melted down for rifle barrels.
