London, Geoffrey Bles, 1925. First Edition. First Impression. A rare Capek in the jacket. The jacket's a little worn with some soiling to the rear panel and a few tears to the spine and rear. Upper spine worn with the tears and creasing. The front however remains bright and intact, and is a stunning example of art deco jacket design. The book itself is near fine with a little bumping to the spine tips and some light offsetting from the flaps. Cover art / illustrations by K. Romney Towndrow [5738, Hyraxia Books].
