12mo. 286pp. Later printing of first edition, without stated First Edition on title page. Front hinge beginning to crack. Pages yellowing at edges and corners bumped. Price clipped dust jacket suffers from significant chipping and closed tears and general wear. A good copy of the incredibly moving book that put a face on human suffering during Nazi occupation in World War II. The first transcription of the diary was in German, by her father, Otto Frank, for his friends and relatives in Switzerland, who convinced him to send it for publication. After several unsuccessful attempts, it finaly found a publisher in Holland, where the diary was found and translated into English by Barbara Mooyaart-Doubleday in 1950 and published with an introduction by Eleanor Roosevelt. The reception of this diary was, and continues to be, emphatic and reading it, a rite of passage.* * * [Please note: additional postage fees may be required for oversized and/or international orders to be shipped.].

Introduction by Eleanor Roosevelt, translated by B.M. Mooyaart-Doubleday. "Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank's remarkable diary has since become a world classic -- a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the "Secret Annex" of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short."
