The Baron in the Trees

Italo Calvino


Random House, Inc., New York, 1959. First US edition. Hardcover, 218pp., 5.5 x 8.5 inches

Very good. Moderate foxing on the spine and some minor staining to front of dust jacket with loose tear at the crown. Red ink markings along joints of boards and very slight bowing at crown of the spine.

Calvino's best selling novel outlines the adventures of a boy who climbs up a tree and spends the rest of his days in an arboreal kingdom. A highly imaginative satire of 18th century life.
