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.].
