The Redemption of Tycho Brahe

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1928. Very Good / Good. Item #9751

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1928. First American Edition. Octavo; xiv, 289pp. Printed blue dust jacket with $2.50 price intact; book in green cloth with dark green lettering. Jacket shallowly tattered along edges with numerous chips and small tears, with a larger chip at head of spine and splitting down much of back flap fold. Boards rubbed and faded along edges, with nudging and some fraying to spine ends and some general scuffs and smudges to surface. Spine a bit cocked. Rear hinge cracked with mesh exposed. Back board and book in general opens easily between gatherings, but binding is sound. Pages unmarked.

Fictionalized account of the relationship between Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler. Brod was a longtime friend of Franz Kafka, to whom the book is dedicated, and as the literary executor of his estate famously refused to burn Kafka's works in keeping with the more famous author's last wishes.
