Metropolis - Thea von Harbou

1927 - The Readers Library Publishing Company Ltd., London - First Edition in English, First issue [no mention of Metropolis in list of Readers Library titles]
A scarce copy of this influential work. In the striking dust jacket.

When Thea von Harbou became Fritz Lang's second wife in 1922, she'd already established herself as an important author and screenwriter. The idea for Metropolis emerged from a novella she'd written a few years previously. The finished novel of Metropolis was written while she (with assistance from Lang) worked on the screenplay, and published in German in 1926, with this, the first edition in English published in 1927, the year the film was released.
