The Diary of a Young Girl:

A first edition, first printing published by Constellation Books in 1952. A fine book with a very small tear to bottom of spine and light wear to top of spine. In the incredibly rare dustjacket - unclipped. Light chipping to the corners and along the edges. A remarkably nice copy.

Tales from the House Behind:

A near-fine first edition, with small folds to the bottom corners of several pages near the back of the book. There is a previous owner's bookplate on the bottom corner of the inside of the front cover. In a very good price-clipped dust jacket. Chipping to spine and corners, and some minor creasing to front cover. Some loss of colour due to shelf wear.


The Diary of a Young Girl:

In July 1942, thirteen-year-old Anne Frank and her family, fleeing the occupation, went into hiding in an Amsterdam warehouse. Over the next two years Anne vividly describes in her diary the frustrations of living in such close quarters, and her thoughts, feelings and longings as she grows up. Her diary ends abruptly when, in August 1944, they were all betrayed.

Tales From the House Behind:

The candid, poignant, unforgettable writing of the young girl whose own life story has become an everlasting source of courage and inspiration.

Hiding from the Nazis in the "Secret Annex" of an old office building in Amsterdam, a thirteen-year-old girl named Anne Frank became a writer. The now famous diary of her private life and thoughts reveals only part of Anne's story, however. This book rounds out the portrait of this remarkable and talented young author.

Newly translated, complete, and restored to the original order in which Anne herself wrote them in her notebook, Tales from the Secret Annex is a collection of Anne Frank's lesser-known writings: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel, Cady's Life.
