GUISEPPE DI LAMPEDUSA – THE LEOPARD

135.00

First English edition, published by Collins and Harvill Press, 1960

"The Leopard has been described as 'one of those books which require a lifetime, either in writing or preparation'. It was in fact written in a few months, begun and completed only a short while before the author's death in 1957." 

Written by a Spanish nobleman, this book emanates Di Lampedusa's wisdom through his lifelong education in culture. An intriguing book full of complexities and subtle humour.
