The Road Back by Erich Maria Remarque 1st 1938
London: Putnam (1938). A third UK edition, with the rare pictoral dust wrapper. The wrapper is in excellent condition with no loss. The spine is a shade tanned. Likewise the book is in lovely condition with no foxing or other marks. Overall a near fine copy.
Set a few weeks after the end of All Quiet on the Western Front, the novel details the experience of young men in Germany who have returned from the trenches of World War I and are trying to integrate back into civilian life. Regarded as the sequel to “All Quiet....”, although not a first edition, this copy has its sought after pictoral jacket.
