Item #30701 THE PLAGUE...translated from the French by Stuart Gilbert. Albert Camus.

THE PLAGUE...translated from the French by Stuart Gilbert.

London: Hamish Hamilton, [1948]. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Novel set in the 1940s concerning an epidemic in the city of Oran in French Algiers. Some critics viewed it as an allegory to the Nazi occupation. Considered with some relevance today vis-a-vis the coronavirus pandemic-sales surged for this book during the pandemic. Light foxing to page edges, some offsetting to the spine panel from the spine of the dust jacket, a just about fine copy in a nearly fine dust jacket with a bright front panel and foxing to the rear panel. An attractive superior copy. (30701). Item #30701
