With half-title.
"This is a Borzoi Book, published by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc." --T.p. verso.
"This is a work of fiction. Broadly it deals with history, but in detail it is invented. Its 'archive' is a hoax. Its characters, even those who use functions with actual precedent - such as the chairmanship of the Judenrat, for example - possess names, faces, traits, and lives altogether imaginary."
"This book was set on the Linotype in Electra, designed by W. A. Dwiggins. The Electra face is a simple and readable type suitable for printing books by present-day processes."
"Jacket design by George Salter. Typography and binding by W. A. Dwiggins."--Dustjacket.
Anisfield-Wolf Book Award, 1951.
