In the first issue jacket

First edition in English, first impression, in the first state jacket with "German Opinions" on the front flap.

The present UK edition of the work preceded the US edition by three months. Originally serialised in the Vossische Zeitung in late 1928, Remarque's elegy to the generation that had been "destroyed by war, even though it might have escaped its shells", was first issued in book form in January 1929 and sold 2.5 million copies in 22 languages in its first eighteen months in print (Falls, p. 293). It was adapted into a highly successful film in 1930.
