Why We Love This

The Leopard, by Giuseppe di Lampedusa. London: Collins/Harvill Press, 1960. First edition, fifth printing, from same year as the first. With a gorgeous jacket designed by Hans Tisdall, this is a lovely copy of one of the great romantic novels. Semi-autobiographical and written months before the Prince of Lampedusa's death, it recreates the splendor of life in 1860s Sicily. Book has slight dirt to front edge, otherwise an above-average copy of this masterpiece, in a perfect jacket.
