About This Item

Prague: Svoboda, 1969. Later Czech edition. Hardcover. Very good -. 209 pp. Octavo. [20.5 cm]. Blue cloth over boards with stamped illustration of eyeglasses, a pipe, and a pen on front cover. Publisher's pink top stain. Original dust jacket is in very good- condition, intact but foxed, toned, and mildly torn at edges and corners. Water damage to bottom portion of back cover, but textblock and dust jacket are unaffected. Written in his mother tongue, apek writes short essays about specific words and their uses and idiocyncracies. The second portion of the book moves into a broader reflection on the use of phrases and idioms and their cultural significance.
