About this Item

First English edition. 8vo, original blue cloth in the rare dustjacket. 446. A near mint copy of the book, the jacket with some mellowing to the spine and very minor edgewear. "Wedding Preparations," though never finished, is an early story which shows Kafka "at the outset of his literary career, already a master of language, but still uncertain how best to handle his material" (from the jacket). "Letter to My Father" is an interesting example of the complex relationship between artist son and businessman father. Also included are a large number of stories and fragments from the notebooks, some of which are published here for the first time. Bookseller Inventory # 8764
