Descripción Harper & Brothers, New York, 1949. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Very Good Minus. 1st Edition. Stated First Edition. It's the First American Edition. It Was translated from the French by J. H. F. McEwen. I believe the English first edition was published a year after this edition. This book in any edition is quite rare. And quite expensive. I have endeavored to make it more affordable. Take a look at the other options. If you can call $145.00 book a bargain this would certainly be the one. And age has not intimidated the book. Billy Crystal would've said 'you look Mavelous' (sic). Take a look at the photographs. The covers are very clean. The gilt lettering on the spine is very bright. The corners and edges are in very good shape. The top of the spine has a slight bit of fraying, the bottom a little bend. The front cover has a thin line of a lighter color at the middle. The interior of the book is in excellent condition. Firstly, the book is very solidly bound, square and tight, no issues. Next, the pages are uniformly clean. I didn't see any soiling. Nor are there any markings. I didn't see any creases or dogeared corners. And no one has written their name or anything else on any page. The dust jacket, while certainly far from perfect, is above the expectations that one would hold given its age (67) and clearly superior to the others for sale. It is therefore rated Very Good Minus. You can see it in the first three photographs. It is Not price-clipped ($3.00). For some reason the bottom of the front flap is neatly clipped. The price is at the top of the front flap. The flaps are in very good condition, without any tears. The white portion of the front cover has only very mild handling soiling. As is also the case for the white rear cover. You should be able to see the 2 or 3 tears off the top edge of the front and similarly off the bottom edge of the front. There is a tiny bit of loss at the juncture of the front bottom edge and spine bottom edge and again a tiny bit of loss at the top of the spine. The rear of the dust jacket has a scuff to the left of the photo that has lifted off a little bit of paper. The dust jacket will be fitted with a protective cover. From the dust jacket flap 'Alone in his bare room in a French provincial city, young Fabian finds existence weighing heavy. In despair at the endless round of days to come, he wishes, as we all have wished, to escape, to be something other than himself, if only for an hour. Very soon after, a mysteriously obliging M. Brittomart enables Fabian to become anyone he chooses, for as long as he likes. Armed with Brittlomart's formula, Fabian launches upon a remarkable series of transformations, moving from one body to the next, encountering unforeseen advantages and startling drawbacks. In each change, Fabian is in full possession of the mind and body of the person he elects to become, and yet the half remembers himself well enough to view this other man apart. Through this fantastic power Julian Green explores with wit and no little profundity those baffling limits which are necessarily imposed on the human individual's searching of the heart and mind of another. Having an inquisitive mind, Julian Green has long been fascinated with this question of individuality, of why each of us is his particular self and not someone else. If I Were You. touches provocatively upon this ancient quandary and upon the "dark forest" which is the heart of another.' Julien Green (September 6, 1900 ¿ August 13, 1998) was an American writer who authored several novels, a four-volume autobiography and his famous Diary (in nineteen volumes). He wrote primarily in French and was the first non-French national to be elected to the Académie française. Julian Hartridge Green was born to American parents in Paris, a descendant on his mother's side of a Confederate Senator, Julian Hartridge , who later served as a Democratic Representative from Georgia to the US Congress, and who was Julien Green's namesake. (Green was christened "Julian"; his French publisher changed the spelling to Julien). Nº de ref. de la librería 000914
