Short stories and fragments, c. 1920

MS. Kafka 45
Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

Eighteen leaves re-ordered following the sequence established in Nachgelassene I (A), 71-72, including (fols. 3v-6) [Bei den Toten zu Gast]. Brod's(?) earlier order can be reconstructed using the pencilled pagination (his page numbers on the rectos have been circled). KKA counts these leaves as 11 leaves (counting each of the folded 4º leaves as one leaf; their fols. 1-3 now = 1-6; 4 = 7-8; 5 = 9; 6-7 = 10-12; 8-9 = 13-14; 10 = 15-16; 11 = 17-18.
