Description:
New York: Grossman, 1972. The General of the Dead Army ponders the futility of war as it follows an Italian general and a priest who seek the remains of a fallen comrade. It received many positive reviews: "Mr. Kadare advances wryly and dryly into the darkness[he] doesn't do messages; he brings them to lethal life" (New York Times). And the Boston Globe called it "a powerful and poignant Albanian novel." The novel has also been entered into the Parisian magazine Le Monde's 100 Books of the Century, and twenty years after its publication by Sh.B. Naim Frashëri in 1963 it was adapted into an Italian drama film directed by Luciano Tovoli.

Berlin: Gustav Kiepenheuer Verlag, 1931. First edition of this collection of short stories by Kafka. Octavo, bound in full leather, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt tooling to the front and rear panel, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In fine condition. While written in 1917, it was not published until 1930, seven years after Kafka's death. Max Brod included it in Beim Bau der Chinesischen Mauer, the first posthumous collection of short stories by Franz Kafka.Contained within the story is a parable that was separately published as "A Message from the Emperor" ("Eine kaiserliche Botschaft") in 1919 in the collection Ein Landarzt (A Country Doctor). Some sub-themes of the story include why the wall was built piecemeal (in small sections in many different places), the relationship of the Chinese with the past and the present and the emperor's imperceptible presence. The story is told in first person by an older man from a southern province.

Description:
Leipzig: Kurt Wolff, 1916. True first edition of one of Franz Kafka's most important works. Octavo, original wrappers. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket, rebacked. An exceptional example. The Metamorphosis tells the story of salesman Gregor Samsa who wakes one morning to find himself inexplicably transformed into a huge insect. "While critics have interpreted this chilling story variously as a description of despair in a meaningless world, as a reaction to institutional authoritarianism, and as an expression of conflict between the author and his father, its power seems to rest in its resistance to explanation. W.H. Auden has said of it, 'Had one to name the author who comes nearest to bearing the same kind of relation to our age as Dante, Shakespeare and Goethe bore to theirs, Kafka would be the first one would think of" (New York Public Library's Books of the Century, 13).

Description:
New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 2006. First edition of the scientist's autobiography which deals with the groundbreaking work on the biological process of memory, which earned him the Nobel Prize. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For John Life is a circle you come back to a lot of interests that you had early in life. With warm regards Eric Kandel." Fine in a near fine dust jacket.

New York: Greenberg, 1931. First edition of this classic work. Octavo, original maroon cloth. In very good condition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Scientific Forecasting was based on Karsten's experience as stock market analyst, and was written as a handbook for stockbrokers. This work on scientific forecasting focussed on the methods and application to practical business and to stock market operations, and relied on the techniques of the economic barometers. "Karsten was fairly optimistic about his abilities to make prognoses, but, as he had to admit , 'at the present time this investigation can not account for economic changes which are wholly due to the element of mob-, crowd- or herd-psychology'.[18] In general, however, Karsten's conclusion is that these psychological factors are relatively unimportant, which leads him to find reason to state that his results support "economic determinism". There is only one exception: the stock market. Of course it is not… Read more
