Arch of Triumph (1945)


"The Rats Are Leaving Paris"

Remarque, Erich Maria. Arch of Triumph. New York and London: D. Appleton-Century, 1945.

Octavo. Hardcover. 1st Edition.

First edition of Erich Maria Remarque's moving anti-war novel about the human experience in Paris just prior to the outbreak of war. "A superb piece of writing--a racking book to experience... In the course of this story, one sees one whole segment of a sick world--a cross section of that decadent Paris in which little people and big could hide--and love and live and die. A superb book, unpalatable for many--but a book that is more significant than any he has done since All Quiet on the Western Front" (Kirkus). Book fine, bright dust jacket near-fine with only light wear mainly to extremities. A notably handsome copy.
