Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften
Berlin & Lausanne: Ernst Rowohlt Verlag; Imprimerie Centrale,, 1930?-43. Roman. 3 volumes, octavo. First volume in original grey paper wrappers printed in brown and orange with the titles elegantly integrated into a Constructivist design by Emil Rudolf Weiss, second and third volumes in original green cloth with black and brown morocco labels to spines. Portrait frontispiece and two other black and white plates to third volume. Wrappers slightly chipped at corners, backstrip with a few creases and short split at tail; Volume 3 with tiny chip to one of the spine labels and contents lightly toned as a result of being printed on inferior paper stock. An excellent set with overall bright contents. First editions, first impressions, of the author's unfinished masterpiece. Wrappered issue of first volume. The third volume is made up of galley chapters and drafts, which were published posthumously in Switzerland where Musil and his Jewish wife Martha had lived in exile since 1938. Scarce in such fresh condition and with the usually missing third volume.
