Seven Brothers

£19.99

Product description

Aleksis Kivi was born in 1834 and died in 1872. His birthplace, Nurmijarvi in Southern Finland, provided the material for the landscape and characters of his solitary novel 'Seven Brothers' at which he worked for nine years. His other works are all plays or poems.
First published in 1870, this book was for three quarters of a century the most widely circulated book in Finland next to the Bible. It can be read as a simple tale of adventure and humour, but for the non-Finnish reader it can at the same time be a key to the Finnish national character and the country by which the character was moulded.
It has been translated into most European languages - this English version translated by Alex. Matson and published in Finland. This copy, printed in 1952, is in good condition. Dustjacket is rubbed, faded at spine and has a number of small tears. Grey cloth cover very good. Inside pages very good and clean with only a couple of small marks. A tidy copy.
