DescriptionB. Traven. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. New York: Alfred Knopf, 1935.
First edition. Octavo. 366 pages.
Publisher's black cloth with gilt spine lettering and blind cover lettering. Original pictorial dust jacket with $2.50 price on front flap. Minor edge and fold line wear but overall a very good jacket on a great copy of the book.
At the time this edition appeared, Traven's work was little known in Britain and America, although he was already a widely popular writer in Germany and throughout Europe. It was only with the success of the John Huston film version of this novel, starring Humphrey Bogart, that Traven attained the status in the English-speaking world that he enjoys to this day.
