Hardback, 7.5 x 5 inches. Blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine and front. In dustwrapper. In very good condition with very good dustwrapper. (DW Spine slightly darkened with small chips to ends, rubbing to edges, in protective sleeve, not price clipped.) Small bumps to ends of spine. Cloth clean, pages all clean and tight. 451pp. The first book publication of a work by Kafka into English. First English edition of "Das Schloss", in a translation by Edwin and Willa Muir, with a preface by Edwin Muir and an "Additional Note" by Max Brod. The Castle will never attain the fame of its sister The Trial, but in literary terms it is more than a match. This was the first publication in English of any of Kafka’s books, preceding English editions of The Trial and Metamorphosis by some 7 years. It is far scarcer than either.
Title: THE CASTLE. Definitive Edition, Translation and introduction by Willa and Edwin Muir. With additional material by Eithne Wilkins and Ernest Kaiser.
