New York: Viking, 1931. Pseudonym of Lev Nussimbaum (1905-1942) a Jewish covert to Islam who has an intriguing biography and is a bit of a biblio-mystery: he is possibly the author of "Ali and Nino," a sort of national romantic epic of Ajerbijan (1937). He wrote in German, and was popular with the Nazis until his ethnicity was revealed. Although prolific, his works are scarce today other than in reprint. This is a Very Good (minus) copy of the First American Edition of Lev's second published work. Purple cloth binding with the figure of a red horseman on the front cover; somewhat faded, enough on the spine so it has turned to brown. Maps of the area as endpapers. Clean text; 828 pages. Quercus adds the Minus grading because the gutters have split; the book remains sound nonetheless. Lacking the dustjacket; in an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First American Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. First Edition.
