Boston: Beacon Hill Press, 1957. First American Edition. New. Item #432
First Printing. Fine and unread in a bright, Near Fine dustjacket. A touch of nicking at the crown, with a small splash at the bottom right corner of the rear panel and faint soil to same. Calvino's first novel, and the first to be published in the U.S. Told from a child's perspective, Calvino paints the trauma of war torn Italy using a variety of impressive characters.
