London: Hodder & Stoughton, (1982)
Absolutely stunning As New true (U.K.) First Edition, First Printing in its equally pristine but price-clipped dust jacket of Thomas Keneally’s Booker Prize-winnning international best-seller (with its original title) about the German Catholic industrialist who saved the lives of over twelve hundred Jews during the holocaust.
Among literally countless other national and international honors and awards, the superb Steven Spielberg-directed film adaptation received a staggering seven well-deserved Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director (Spielberg), Best Adapted Screenplay (Steven Zaillian), Best Cinematography (the great Janusz Kaminski), Best Editing (Michael Kahn), Best Art Direction (Allan Starski & Ewa Braun), and Best Original Score (John Williams).
Today, rarely, if ever, seen in such immaculate condition, this landmark title is made exceptionally memorable and incomparably valuable as a prime example of investment literature as it is prominently signed on the title page by Steven Spielberg.
