Product description

This classic, written by a Nobel Prize winner, is revered in Europe but little known elsewhere. It is the continuation of du Gard's Les Thibaults, the novel about a French middle class family at the turn of the 20th century.
Roger Martin du Gard ( 23 March 1881 – 22 August 1958) was a French author and winner of the 1937 Nobel Prize for Literature. Trained as a paleographer and archivist, he brought to his works a spirit of objectivity and a scrupulous regard for detail. Because of his concern with documentation and with the relationship of social reality to individual development, he has been linked with the realist and naturalist traditions of the 19th century.
Bound in cobalt blue cloth with gilt lettering to the spine, the cover is worn and faded on corners and edges with a closed tear at the top of the spine causing foldback. The end pages at the front are a little split at top and foot, exposing some of the webbing, Text block edges are a little toned, but the block is tight and all text pages are clean, with clear text.
In almost very good condition (our grades tend to be conservative).
