The Goncourt Journals 1851-1870 — The Goncourt Bros.
Nice little compact Anchor edition of journal scribblings by the famed fin de siecle French brothers, Edmond and Jules Goncourt. Herein find "sardonic portraits of Flaubert, Daudet, Balzac, Hugo, Maupassant, Zola, and a host of others..." Presented and translated by Lewis Galantiere. Splendid Edward Gorey cover typography, too.
Condition-wise this is about as fine as a book of this ilk is going to be. Tight spine, clean pages. Unmarked covers. Spine ends are ever slightly knicked.
Garden City, New York: Doubleday Anchor Books, 1958.
