SCHWEIK: The Good Soldier
Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran and Company, Inc, 1930. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good. Referred to often as an anarchist and bohemian, Jaroslav Hasek (1883-1923) wrote this novel while in the later stages of tuberculosis. Originally planned to encompass six volumes, Hasek only completed four prior to his death at the age of 39. Drawing from his experiences in World War I, the book is a satirical take on war that Joseph Heller credited with influencing his novel "Catch-22." First US Edition. First Printing. Striking orange dusk jacket with black and white printing, illustration of a soldier's hat on the cover panel. Dust jacket has considerable small chips and tears, soiling and losses at head and foot of spine, rear panel at top edge, price clipped, now in mylar cover. Orange cloth covered boards with "The Griffin" emblem embossed on front board, titling to spine. Spine has sunned slightly, light sunning to edges of boards. Light age toning to endpapers, quote inscribed in ink on first free endpaper: "Be a good soldier Trimble," otherwise clean within. Rare in dust jacket.
