Thornton Wilder into Dutch! The cloth binding now a bit faded has gold printing on the cover and the date 1935 on the spine, it is a second printing copy and I assume the cover is unchanged from the first printing.It is beyond the scope of this particular post to get into the merits of the translation but there is a coincidence between this book and the original American version which will surprise you probably as much as it did me.


The figure on the Dutch cover is almost exactly the same as the American one, a nice job of copying the design! I actually prefer it to the original one.

The Dutch version gives no credit to the designer of the binding and neither does the American version but have a look in our earlier post here, for some other interesting facts about the author.
