A first edition, first printing, published by Secker and Warburg in 1956. A very good book with internals free from inscriptions, the text block with slight spotting, with very slight bumping to the head and foot of the spine. The foot of the spine and similarly front and rear board have faded bottom strip with light internal spotting to the first pages. In a very good unclipped dust wrapper with some wear to knuckles of front panel folds, chips to the head of the spine with small tears along the top of the front panel, some slight internal spotting. The dust wrapper executed beautifully by John Minton.

Along the Arno is a captivating novel set in Florence during the tumultuous years of World War II. Against the backdrop of Nazi occupation, the lives of an eclectic cast of characters intersect, weaving a tale of love, betrayal and resistance. Glanville’s rich prose vividly evokes the beauty of Florence’s landscapes and the horrors of wartime brutality. Through gripping storytelling, he explores themes of loyalty, sacrifice and the indomitable human spirit in the face of adversity.
