First English edition, first impression. The Castle will never attain the fame of its sister The Trial, but in literary terms it is more than a match. This was the first publication in English of any of Kafka’s books, preceding English editions of The Trial and Metamorphosis by some seven years. It is far scarcer than either.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt, top edge dyed yellow. With the dust jacket. Spine faded, edges of boards a little dulled, spotting to edges of text block and title leaves. An excellent copy in the jacket that is a little rubbed, creased, and dulled along the edges, with a few small chips and toned spine panel.
