Walpurgisnacht written by Gustav Meyrink (1868-1932)

Linocut illustrations by Vladimir Zimakov

This early 20'th century novel uses the city of Prague as the setting for a clash between German officialdom immured in the ancient castle, and a Czech revolution seething in the city below. History, myth, romance and political reality merge in this truly apocalyptic epic.
