        Der Prozess. Roman.

      Berlin, Die Schmiede, 1925. Bound with the original printed wrappers (the original paper-binding), also the spine as well as the front part of the scarce original dust-jacket, in a very elegant private browninsh-black morocco binding in avantgarde 20'ies-style, with a circle of emerald green calf as title-label, with gilt title, to spine, the calf-circle continuing on to both boards, and a circle of bright red calf as author-lable, with author in gold, overlapping the lover part of the title-circle and also continuing on to both boards. Gilt super ex-libris to inside of front board. Binding signed in gold to inside of back board: Henning Jensen, gilding by Hagel Olsen. The original striped paper wrappers in wood-like pattern, with the blue and red title-label to front and cream and red title-label to spine, have been mounted. The remains of the original dust-jacket that has also been bound in, is slightly shaved at top and bottom and has been strengthened at the fore-edge. Internally very fine and clean. Fore- and bottom-edges uncut, top-edge stained blue (original staining).. First edition of Kafka's posthumously published magnum opus, his monumental work "The Trial", which counts as one of the most important works of fiction of the 20th century. "In December (of 1914) Kafka finished - once more, one hesitates to use this misleading word, for it never was difinitely completed - his second novel, "Der Prozess"/"The Trial". It was first published - again posthumpusly, again in an incomplete form and edited by Max Brod - in 1925, the year after Kafka's death. It is perhaps this novel which is most associated in the minds of the reading public with the notion of "Kafkaesque" (though the adjective is used liberally by those who have never read Kafka's work) for it begins with an arbitrary and meaningless arrest, and takes its protagonist through an intricate labyrinth of futile protocols. There is a clear connection between Kafka's state of mind when he began this novel and its content." (Murray, "Kafka", pp. 225-26)

A very good copy, indeed.“In an attempt to reinvigorate the market for gift books after the war, Hodder & Stoughton resumed the publishing of Kay Nielsen’s books, though on a more modest scale. In 1924 they published a work that Nielsen had begun in 1912, Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales, including sixteen stories illustrated with twelve watercolors. Nielsen returned to London, and in 1925 his final book for Hodder & Stoughton, Hansel and Gretel, appeared with twelve color plates” (Susan E. Meyer, A Treasury of the Great Children’s Book Illustrators, p. 206).
