About this Item: Macmillan, 1941. hardcover. New York. 1941. October 1941. Macmillan. Reprinted Hardcover Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn & Chipped Dustjacket. ISBN:0201581280. Illustrated by Josef & Karel Capek. . 160 pages. hardcover. . Cover art by Josef Capek. FROM THE PUBLISHER - One thinks immediately of all one’s friends who would love these humorous, yet thoughtful and remarkably observant essays. Mr. Capek is funny without being whimsical, and the exactness of what he says will tickle anyone who knows dogs or cats. He tells first about Minda, the Airedale, about her upbringing, her unpredictable amours, and her puppies. Then he describes Dashenka, one of Minda’s daughters. There is a partly serious essay on Czech dog shows - which seem much like dog shows everywhere - and finally a miscellaneous and highly amusing chapter on dogs and cats. The story of Pudlenka and Pudlenka III and their innumerable offspring is as good as anything Mr. Capek has written, for he is at his best when telling of animals. His particular brand of humor can hardly be surpassed, whether he is writing of Minda, or about the wire-haired terriers, Ben, Benji, Blackie, and Bibi, or about the various cats which have also graced his household. He sees so much which one is apt to believe only oneself sees, that his book is a pure delight. And more, he himself emerges as an extraordinarily likeable person. Karel Capek (January 9, 1890 - December 25, 1938) was one of the most influential Czech writers of the 20th century. Capek was born in Malé Svatonovice, Bohemia, Austria-Hungary (now Czech Republic). He wrote with intelligence and humour on a wide variety of subjects. His works are known for their interesting and precise descriptions of reality, and Capek is renowned for his excellent work with the Czech language. He is perhaps best known as a science fiction author, who wrote before science fiction became widely recognized as a separate genre. He can be considered one of the founders of classical, non-hardcore European science fiction, a type which focuses on possible future (or alternative) social and human evolution on Earth, rather than technically advanced stories of space travel. However, it is best to classify him with Aldous Huxley and George Orwell as a speculative fiction writer, distinguishing his work from genre-specific hard science fiction. Many of his works discuss ethical and other aspects of revolutionary inventions and processes that were already anticipated in the first half of 20th century. These include mass production, atomic weapons, and post-human intelligent beings such as robots or intelligent salamanders. In addressing these themes, Capek was also expressing fear of impending social disasters, dictatorship, violence, and the unlimited power of corporations, as well as trying to find some hope for human beings. . inventory #7741 Very Good In Slightly Worn & Chipped Dustjacket.

About this Item: Allen & Unwin, Sydney, 1940. Hardcover. Capek, Josef, and Capek, Karel (illustrator). First Published in 1940 [stated]. 160 p. From Wikipedia: "Karel Capek (January 9, 1890 December 25, 1938) was a Czech writer of the early 20th century best known for his science fiction, including his novel War with the Newts and the play R.U.R. that introduced the word robot. Born in 1890 in the Bohemian mountain village of Male Svatonovice to an overbearing, emotional mother and a distant yet adored father, Capek was the youngest of three siblings. Capek would maintain a close relationship with his brother Josef, living and writing with him throughout his adult life. Capek became enamored with the visual arts in his teenage years, especially Cubism. He studied in Prague at Charles University and at the Sorbonne in Paris. Exempted from military service due to the spinal problems that would haunt him his whole life, Capek observed World War I from Prague. His political views were strongly affected by the war, and as a budding journalist he began to write on topics like nationalism, totalitarianism and consumerism. Through social circles, the young writer developed close relationships with many of the political leaders of the nascent Czechoslovak state. This included Tomas Garrigue Masaryk and his son Jan, who would later become foreign secretary. His early attempts at fiction were mostly plays written with brother Josef. Capek's first international success was Rossum's Universal Robots, a dystopian work about a bad day at a factory populated with sentient androids. The play was translated into English in 1922, and was being performed in the UK and America by 1923. Throughout the 1920s, Capek worked in many writing genres, producing both fiction and non-fiction, but worked primarily as a journalist. In the 1930s, Capek's work focused on the threat of brutal national socialist and fascist dictatorships; by the mid-1930s, Capek had become "an outspoken anti-fascist". His most productive years were during the The First Republic of Czechoslovakia (1918 1938). He wrote Talks with T. G. Masaryk Masaryk was a Czechoslovak patriot, the first President of Czechoslovakia, and a regular guest at Capek's "Friday Men" garden parties for leading Czech intellectuals. Capek was also a member of Masaryk's Hrad political network. This extraordinary relationship between the writer and the political leader may be unique. He also became a member of International PEN and established, and was first president of, the Czechoslovak Pen Club. Soon after 1938 it became clear that the Western allies (France, Great Britain) had failed to fulfill the agreements(Western betrayal), and failed to defend Czechoslovakia against Adolf Hitler. Karel Capek refused to leave his country despite the fact that the Nazi Gestapo had named him Czechoslovakia's "public enemy number two." Though he suffered all his life from the condition spondyloarthritis, Karel Capek died of double pneumonia on December 25, 1938 shortly after part of Czechoslovakia was annexed by Nazi Germany following the so-called Munich Agreement. apek is buried at the Vysehrad cemetery in Prague. His brother Josef Capek, a painter and writer, died in the Nazi Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Good. No dust jacket. Stamp inside rear cover. Cover has some wear and soiling. Spine frayed.

First UK edition. 160pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] Green cloth over boards with a black ink stamped title on the spine. Very good. Ex-library, with only a perforated library stamp on the last page of the text. Heavy sunning to the spine, and on the surrounding area of the rear board. There are also thin strips of fading along the edges of the boards. The boards are a bit concave, and the spine is slightly rolled. The price-clipped dust jacket is in very good condition, with darkening at the jacket's spine, light rubbing to the surface, and sporadic small chips along the edges and folds. Pictures drawn by the brothers, Josef and Karel Capek. Karel Capek is well known for his early science fiction, particularly The War of the Newts, and for first introducing the word "robot" in his play, R.U.R. From the dust jacket- "These lovely pages will be a delight to those who have ever lived with dogs and cats and even to those who from time to time in their harassed lives have found themselves watching a dog or a cat in their mysterious ways. What is so unforgettable about the discourses and homilies is that they make you feel how much of life is revealed in these eternal companions of man, how much man reveals himself in this companionship, how much they form a part even of our national life.".
