London, Collins, 1956. This is the first English-language edition of Calvino's first book, translated from the Italian by Archibald Colquhoun and inscribed by Colquhoun in the year of publication. Tiny corner bumps; a near fine copy in a very good dust jacket with slight spine fading, light chipping to corners and crown, and a small creased edge tear. Colquhoun also translated or co-translated several of Calvino's later books, such as The Cloven Viscount, The Baron in the Trees, The Nonexistent Knight, The Watcher, Difficult Loves, Our Ancestors, and Adam, One Afternoon.

NY, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, (1971). Fine in a fine, price-clipped dust jacket with a gutter nick at the front spine fold. Still, an exceptionally nice copy. [#000850] $70
