London: George Allen & Unwin LTD, 1935. Karel Capek is famed for his first use of the word "robot," and his iconic novel "War with the Newts." He was nominated for the Nobel prize seven times. This is the second volume in his "Noetic Trilogy" (the others are "Hordubal" and "An Ordinary Life"). First published in Prague in 1934; this is a Very Good copy of the First English Edition, translated by M. & R. Weatherall. An uncommon to scarce title, certainly the hardest to find within the Capek canon. This is a Very Good copy of the First English Edition. Gray cloth binding with fluorescent orange titling on the spine and front cover. Clean text; 256 pages, nicely bright and supple. Some light spotting to the fore-edge. Rubbed and darkened around the margins. The scarce dustwrapper, an iconic Modernist design, is unclipped, but shows chipping around the edges; some larger triangular chips at the foot of the spine and upper corner of the front panel. In an archival plastic protector. A solid copy.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
