Frankfurt, Postverlagsort, 1969. First Edition. First Impression. Paperback. A stunning copy of a rare, and important, work of science fiction. Written in 1930, the book remained unpublished in Russia until 1987 due to the satirical nature of the story and Soviet sensitivities. The present edition is the first edition published in the Russian Language. An excellent dystopia wherein the workers dig an enormous foundation pit for building to house the country's proletarians. An important work that's largely gone under the radar of late, though is slowly gaining momentum with a number of fairly recent reprints. Uncommon thus, particularly in the West. Fine copy. [6449, Hyraxia Books].
