A first edition, first printing published by Constellation Books in 1952. A fine book with one small name to pastedown. A few pages turned. In the incredibly rare dustjacket - unclipped. Chipping to the spine ends. A remarkably nice copy.
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.
