The Power and the Glory

GREENE, Graham

GREENE, Graham The Power and the Glory

Heinemann, 1940.

First edition. Original yellow cloth with red lettering in scarce purple dustwrapper. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper which shows very slight tanning to the white title panel on the spine, but is exceptionally bright and crisp.

Critically considered Greene's greatest novel and one of the highlights of twentieth century literature, which showcases Greene's technique of painting intricate moral landscapes where corrupt characters might still be capable of goodness and virtuous ones indulge their virtues murderously.
It is supposed that most of the stocks of the first edition of this book were destroyed when Heinemann's publishing house was bombed during the war. Consequently the book is scarce and, due to the cheap wartime paper, is rarely found in acceptable condition.
