The Good Soldier: Schweik

New York: Doubleday Doran and Company, 1930.

First English language edition. (First printing with statement of "First edition" on copyright page; most copies purporting to be firsts lack this.) [x], 448, [6] pp. Bound in publisher's orange cloth with brown stamping. Near Fine with slight soiling to cloth, hint of wave to textblock, in a Very Good+ dust jacket, closed tear to front panel, mends to verso, light rubbing, unclipped ($3.00 net). Uncommon in such an attractive example of the dust jacket, which oddly enough sports the transposed title Schweik the Good Soldier.

The famous Czech satirical novel better known as The Good Soldier Švejk. A major work of Eastern European literature as well as one of the first anti-war novels, satirizing the exploits of the Austro-Hungarian empire's Don Quixote in World War I. Item #140945774
