¶ Marga Minco's debut (pseudonym of Sara Menco, 1920-) sold quite well. After the first issue in May, this 2nd edition was published in September 1957, again in a print run of 10,000 copies. Cf. Jessica Voeten p. 20; fig. 4.
This copy (with reading crease on spine, slightly discolored, vulnerable binding) was provided with an author's photo from a newspaper cutting by the first owner on the title page. In addition, the book was SIGNED by Marga Minco on the French title page and - given the note on the motto page - this happened on the Bookmarket of De Bijenkorf during the 'Boekenweek' 1958.
