Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-487 [488], original decorated boards with yellow-green cloth shelf back, spine panel printed in gray. First edition. A metaphysical fantasy about die Unauffindbaren (the untraceable), anarchists who escape from our bourgeois world into a utopian dream world in which they find an appropriate reality. “In it influences mix from the psychology of C. G. Jung as well as from the Hindu religion, with those of the romance of a Jean Paul, Novalis, and in particular E. T. A. Hoffmann. Additionally, a certain relationship to the themes and stylistic devices of Kafka can not be denied.” - Ernst Kreuder: Ein Anarchist der Phantasie (zwishenrufe website forum, 2009). Bloch (2002) 1793. Not in Nagl. A very good copy in very good dust jacket with light wear at edges. (#148115).
