Wonderful book. A picture of its first appearance in the U.K. in 1930FFFA60B0-6E23-48D0-9D69-A523200D2645.jpeg.3b8a57ac78035a37e4d5eafb4a546b6a.jpeg

Fadge and Lada's illustration too :) Have you dust cover in highest resolution?

PS Check this: The Salt of the Earth, Jozef Wittlin.

The Wittlin sounds fascinating. Must find a copy. I can do you a high res scan if you want but I only have an A4 scanner so it would be in 2 halves if you want it all.

I have a pin badge somewhere of 'The Good Soldier', bought in Praque many years ago.

Such a wonderful book.  Sjvejk is just brilliant character and is probably the ultimate idiot savant, like a combination of Eccles and Chauncey Gardinier.  I have a couple of versions go Hasek's novel - the earlier translation feels more real and is funnier but when compared to a later translation clearly omits passages that were too rude or sensitive which is a real shame - I prefer reading the older one.  There is a new translation and this reminds me that I really aught to get to it!
