265 pp. Stated 1st edition. This is the stated first world edition of Feuchtwanger's tale of his imprisonment as an "enemy alien" in war-time France in 1940. He escaped from one camp, only to have to escape a second time, before finally making his way to freedom and New York, where he immediately began writing this book. Feuchtwanger was an excellent, penetrating writer, his narrative all the more poignant because of his Jewish background. It was published in German in Mexico in 1942 and finally published in Germany in 1954. Red cloth is rubbed and bumped at the corners, spine tips rubbed, title and spine gilt faded and only just legible, bottom edge has a short black mark parallel to spine. Interior end papers are foxed, paper is strong but lightly toned, pages 130-154 have a light bump at bottom edge, pages 155-158 have small chip at bottom edge, otherwise clean and nice. Very hard to find.; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
