Prelude / Elojatek
English and Hungarian parallel text of Katherine Mansfield's short story
First edition thus. Small hardback in dustwrapper. 18.5 × 12.5cm, 139pp. Text in English and Hungarian.
A short story by Katherine Mansfield first published in 1918. The story is based on the Beauchamps' move to Karori, a country suburb of Wellington, in 1893 and is a compressed and subtler version of a longer work The Aloe. The story is printed in parallel text with English verso and Hungarian recto.
A good copy though the dustwrapper is chipped and a bit grubby. The book is in strong readable condition.
