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.

DIE WEISS ROSE [The White Rose]. B. Traven. DIE WEISS ROSE [The White Rose].
Berlin: Buchergilde Gutenberg, (1929). First edition. Treverton's first issue with "DISTURP" in English line p.61 and initial "S" p.109 inverted. Frankly, the only reason we can tell the "S" is inverted is we have two copies -- the first issue and the second (with "DISTURB" and "S" the right way up). Treverton [496] notes the first issue is "somewhat paler and the paper is thinner than the second issue." The paper is thinner but the binding colors are completely different. The first state is light tan cloth with green top-edge stain and a fairly flat spine; the second state is a pale reddish brown (or perhaps pale rose) cloth with dark green top-edge stain and noticeably rounded spine. Both are stamped in black on fronts and spines. Both volumes near fine with only minor cover wear lacking the scarce dust jackets. Price is for both copies.
