Año de publicación: 1926
Edición: 1st Edition
Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt on red ground, ruling and titles to front board gilt, top edge dyed yellow. With the dust jacket. Ownership ink stamp to rear pastedown. Spine a little rolled, boards a little rubbed and marked, spine slightly faded. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with spotting to the spine and rear panels. First edition, first impression, in the preferred deluxe binding. Based on the original screenplay written by German director Fritz Lang and his wife Thea von Harbou in 1924, this novelization was published before the release of the film version on 10 January 1927. The film Metropolis is a classic both of German expressionism and of silent-era science fiction; it remains the most expensive silent film ever made, costing approximately 5 million Reichsmark. Influenced by the Soviet science fiction film Aelita by Yakov Protazanov (1924), which was an adaptation of a novel by Alexei Tolstoy, Metropolis advocates non-violent non-collaboration rather than the Marxist ideal of "class struggle" promoted by Aelita.
