About This Item

New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc, 1957. First American Edition. Very Good/Very Good. First American edition, first printing. Very Good with toning to pages, light lean to spine with light wear at spine ends and corners. In a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with edge wear, toning, soiling and light staining to the front flap. A very handsome copy of the first title in the Alexandria Quartet.

Synopsis

The time is the eve of the World War II. The place is Alexandria, an Egyptian city that once housed the world's greatest library and whose inhabitants are dedicated to knowledge. But for the obsessed characters in this mesmerizing novel, their pursuits lead only to bedrooms in which each seeks to know—and possess—the other. Since its publication in 1957, Justine has inspired an almost religious devotion among readers and critics alike.
