No Dust Jacket, Reprint of an edition first published in 1925, 192pp. Black cover, Spine has small tan label, slightly browned. With numerous line illustrations by the Author. Translated by Paul Selver, Capek was as one of the most influential Czech writers of the 20th century.Humorous, insightful, and imbued with profound humanity, these letters convey a bemused admiration for a country that in the 1920s still lived according to the memory of its greatness. With a light touch and artistic flourish, Capek described the virtues and vices of Europe's oldest democracy for the benefit of the citizens of Europe's newest. Banned by the Nazis and later by the Communists, this translation offers an opportunity to enjoy the unusual foundations of a national culture. Bookseller Inventory # 000056
