Der Schatz der Sierre Madre.Berlin : 1927 Stock Code: 48065
NotesFirst edition. This copy is the first true edition in the German language of this famous novel, translated into English as The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (London: 1934, New York: 1935). Undoubtedly the most famous of Traven's novels, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre was his third book. It is a tale of human greed and the lust for gold, and formed the basis of John Huston's 1948 film starring Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston.
Octavo. Original yellow decorated cloth, blind-blocked in red and blue/grey, pale green endpapers, blue top-stain.
One or two spots to front side, blue top-stain a little faded, prelims slightly spotted and toned in margins, still an excellent copy.
