The Seed Beneath the Snow
An anti-fascist novel from Ignazio Silone
First UK edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 19.5 × 13cm, 384pp.
A novel from the Italian anti-fascist which portrays socialist heroes who try to help the peasants by sharing their sufferings in a Christian spirit. First published in Italy as Il seme sotto la neve in 1940.
The book is in good, readable condition, though the title page and first 12 pages of text have a crease to the outer edge. The dustwrapper is edgeworn and price-clipped but remains an attractive design.
