The Plague by Albert Camus


Rare early 70's printing with awesome rare cover. 

Nice vintage reading copy with some edge wear to cover; bit of creasing to rear corner.

Reads perfectly with some inevitable tanning to pages.

A gripping tale of human unrelieved horror, of survival and resilience, and of the ways in which humankind confronts death, The Plague is at once a masterfully crafted novel, eloquently understated and epic in scope, and a parable of ageless moral resonance, profoundly relevant to our times. In Oran, a coastal town in North Africa, the plague begins as a series of portents, unheeded by the people. It gradually becomes an omnipresent reality, obliterating all traces of the past and driving its victims to almost unearthly extremes of suffering, madness, and compassion.
