The Defeated. Ludwig LEWISOHN.

The Defeated

London: Thornton Butterworth, [1927]. First Edition. The German-American author's most enduring work, a scathing critique of Jewish-American assimilation which found its roots in Lewisohn's own experiences with anti-semitism within the American academic community . Published in America under the title "The Island Within," however the London edition preceded the American by nearly a year. Oft-reprinted, but this first UK printing is somewhat uncommon. HANNA 2186 (citing the U.S. edition). Octavo. Green cloth boards, lettered in dull yellow on spine; 320pp. Light external wear and handling; some minor paint-speckling to front cover; internally clean, tight and unmarked. An attractive VG copy, lacking the scarce dustwrapper.

Price: $60.00
