Printing Details

First UK edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 303pp.

Silone's political satire. This novel is on the subject of how to become a dictator and how to remain in power... "Mr W., an American, who hides himself under a discreet incognito, but is 'the Man of To-morrow', has come to Europe to study the secret of dictatorship, in order that he may storm the White House".


The book is in good solid condition, but foxed to the page edges. The dustwrapper is a little creased, rubbed and tanned to the edges and folds, and has been neatly price-clipped.
