THE CARRETA. B. Traven. THE CARRETA.
London: Chatto & Windus, (1935). First UK edition. Originally published in Germany in 1931 as DER KARREN. Translated from the German by Basil Creighton. (Although the very mysterious Traven claimed the English versions came first, nearly all his books were first published in Germany.) THE CARRETA is the first of his "Jungle" or "Mahagony" novels, a series of six books published in the 1930's that focus on the rebellion among indigenous Mexicans forced to work clearing mahogany in labor camps in the jungle leading to the outbreak of the Mexican Revolution. Bluish gray cloth lettered in gilt on spine; top edge gray; tipped-in frontis photograph of workers making camp. Tiny crimp to one corner, thin streak of fading to spine, still near fine in first-issue dust jacket priced "7s6d" (there was a cheap edition issued with price clipped and "3/6 net" added in red). The jacket has some shallow chipping and shows age and some darkening on spine but is still good to very good and quite scarce. HIS SCARCEST BOOK, ESPECIALLY SO IN DUST JACKET.

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1934. First U.S. edition and first publication of Traven's own English-language translation of his first novel. Though the UK edition with translation by Eric Sutton precedes it, this is the preferred edition of, arguably, his most famous book after THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE. Fine with just a touch of faint offset to front endpaper; in near fine dust jacket with few tiny rubs, nicks and tears and slight toning to spine. FIRST WITH TRAVEN'S OWN TRANSLATION.
