Catalogue Note

True first edition of The Diary of a Young Girl. In June 1947 Otto Frank published his daughter Anne’s diary, which has become one of the most famous books written during the Nazi occupation of western Europe. Anne herself selected the title Het Achterhuis, literally "back of the house," but now known throughout the English-speaking world as The Diary of Anne Frank. Limited edition, with only 1,500 published.
