NHBA. Soviet Women's Magazine fragment.
First printing of a Kafka story, signed by Kafka. The owner wanted it to be preserved in a book format. I hinged the pages and bound them in with additional sheets to make a book. The covers are backed linen, a bit aged, and the initials embroidered onto the cloth. In a blue silk clam shell box, lined in ultra suede. Picture 2 is of the cover page.
