With the book plate of the Bookseller R. J. Dickinson on front paste-down. Fine copy in a price-clipped, but otherwise complete dustjacket which is faded on the spine and has a number of small nicks the longest of which is 2cm.
Many of the pieces in this collection have never been published before. "Wedding Preparations," though never finished, is an early story which shows Kafka "at the outset of his literary career, already a master of language, but still uncertain how best to handle his material" (from the jacket). "Letter to My Father" is an interesting example of the complex relationship between artist son and businessman father, short sections of which have only appeared before in "Letters to Milena". Also included are a large number of stories and fragments from the notebooks. An important collection.
