More Information
Franz Kafka, born in Prague 3rd July 1883, was relatively unknown during his short lifetime. He is now hugely regarded throughout the world, many readers and critics go as far as to say he is the greatest writer of the century. All of his books were written in German so these English first editions have all been translated, we have duly noted the translators, given their importance. Needless to say they are very collectable, the German editions are probably the most valuable though early English 1sts are also very valuable. any pre war first editions in original dust jackets are going to be big ticket books and probably out of reach for many collectors.
If you are looking to buy or sell rare books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
