Oxford: Humphrey Milford Oxford University Press, 1923. Printed wrappers. Fore-edge of title-leaf shows moisture offset from front wrapper, otherwise a very good copy. Item #WRCLIT83336
First edition in English, translated from the Czech by Paul Selver, and adapted by Nigel Playfair and Clifford Bax. A work published contemporary with Karel's best known work, R.U.R., of equal importance as an anti- totalitarian satire, and considered by many critics a significantly better drama.
