Author / Artist:

Kafka, Franz


Leipzig: Kurt Wolff Verlag. 1915


First edition, first printing. Publisher's plain buff card covers with the original illustrated dustwrapper. Housed in a bespoke quarter black morocco solander box, with titles in gilt to the spine. An excellent near fine copy, the binding firm and without tears, neat ink date to the upper cover. The contents are clean and bright throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and toned Ottomar Starke illustrated dustwrapper, the spine intact and without tears. A very nice example in entirely original condition, scarce thus.
