London: George Allen & Unwin, 1942. Tomas Masaryk (1850-1937) was a founder, and the first President, of Czechosovakia, acknowledged as the strongest democracy in Europe until its occupation first by Germany and then the Soviet Union. "Karel Capek, creator of the Robot, was not merely a great artist or even a great satirist - he was a demorat with a social conscience who clearly saw the dangers which threatened mankind in the modern age" (from the dustwrapper). Originally published in 1934; translated from the original Czech. This is a Very Good (Plus) copy of the Third Impression of that First English Edition, rather interesting due to its wartime nature. Bright yellow cloth boards with green lettering on the spine. Clean text; 302 pages. Slight splay, and a few scattered spots on the covers. Quercus awards it a "Plus" due to the quality of its wartime paper and its brightness. The dustwrapper is also Very Good Plus: bright and unclipped, with only some light edgewear and soil. In an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Later Printing.. Hard Cover. Very Good Plus/Very Good Plus. Dust jacket present.
