London, Gollancz, 1937. Proof. A good copy. Sometimes a book hits our cataloguing desk that stands out as being just an exceptional book, either condition-wise, scarcity or just cultural cachet. This Kafka is one of those books. A literary masterpiece, and a happily adopted child of speculative fiction. Uncommon in the proof. Condition: spine lean, fraying to tips, wrappers soiled, ownership inscription to title page. About as expected of an 80-year-old proof. Still, it's a Kafka proof. [8866, Hyraxia Books].
