From an auction of modern first editions with an almost complete auction Lot of Gunter Grass Novels--and with the auction tag laid into the book--A superb fine copy in an unclipped and very good plus dustjacket. This copy is signed by the author--signature only-- on the golden front free endpaper. A tight and clean copy with no evidence of previous ownership. The dustjacket has light shallow edgewear to the head of the spine and moderate edgewear to the heel--otherwise the dustjacket would also be fine. Protected in an acrylic acetate dustjacket cover. Grass was the Nobel Prize winning author of "The Tin Drum"--who led a fascinating--although quite controversial --life, who railed against the war-like nature of man and the danger it meant to our overall survival--only to reveal in 2006 that he was a former member of the Waffen SS.
