London, Humphrey Milford / Oxford University Press, 1923. First edition, first impression. Paperback. A near fine copy. This is the first British edition of the well-known play (for those unaware, Capek first utilised the word 'robot' (from the Czech robota) to refer to a mechanical humanoid machine. A little fading to the edges of the wrapper. Square of paper pasted over the cast list at the front as usual (a copyright issue it seems). 1pp ads to the rear. Spine a little worn, it has likely been glued at some point. A nice copy overall. [9272, Hyraxia Books].
