The Trial

Notes: The uncommon first English language edition of this classic 20th century novel.

Translated by Willa and Edwin Muir, with an epilogue by Kafka's friend and champion Max Brod.

285 pages.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing, with no additional printings noted). Spine faded; offsetting to endpapers, possibly from an old book covering; generally good; lacking the dust jacket. This copy, however, has an interesting provenance, with the ownership signatures of the Surrealist Gordon Onslow Ford and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Texas writer Larry McMurtry along with McMurtry's stirrup bookplate.
