About this Item

The modernist fantasy, originally published in serial form between December 1913 and August 1914, as a book in 1915, selling 200,000 copies, and which continues the tradition of Prague golem stories beginning with Rabbi Loew’s in the 16th century. Robert Irwin has noted, 'Meyrink does not rehash the established historical ingredients; he was significantly a contemporary of Prague’s other fantasist. We have the Castle which is not Kafka's Castle, the Trial which is not Kafka's Trial, and a Prague which is not Kafka's Prague.' Dustwrapper designed by Edward McKnight Kauffer Owner stamp, prelims and extremities foxed, else very good in dustwrapper with remnants of tape bleed on the reverse. Bookseller Inventory # 45452
