The gardener's year by Karel Čapek ( Book )
34 editions published between 1931 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is seldom that a practical guide to gardening attains the level of a literary masterpiece, still more seldom that a book on gardening can amuse and instruct even those who have no garden to plant., nor the faintest interest in acquiring one. The GardenerGÇÖs Year is a charismatic product of Karel CapekGÇÖs genius: amusing, informative, and full of a quizzical interest in people, animals and plants. In this new version, Geoffrey Newsome GÇôthe highly acclaimed translator of CapekGÇÖs witty Letters from England GÇôhas captured the grace and irony of the original Czech, to produce a volume that

Nine fairy tales by Karel Čapek: and one more thrown in for good measure by Karel Čapek ( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Like traditional fairy tales, Čapek's fantastic parables contain marvels and supernatural beings, fairies, elves, and talking animals; their plots stem from folk traditions where innocence triumphs. At the same time, Čapek infuses these tales with dazzling wordplay, an abundant sense of the absurd, and surpising futuristic twists. Fact and imagination, satire and fantasy are blended so skillfully that the line between logic and plausible nonsense is nearly indiscernible. These are not just children's tales but modern parables." -- cover

Psáno do mraků. 1936-1939 by Josef Čapek ( Book )
20 editions published between 1947 and 1993 in Czech and Undetermined and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Knížka je pestrou paletou autorova myšlenkového světa, který je tu zachycen v nejčastější podobě jeho prožívání - v aforistickém záznamu a ve stručném zamyšlení. I postřehy a úvahy subjektivnějšího rázu se vyslovují k problémům obecnějším. Čapek v nich filosofuje o životě, o světě kolem sebe, o umění, a přitom se textem postupně proklubávají stále častěji otázky politické, jak se nad Evropou a Československem zatahují mračna nacistické expanze. Nadčasové formulace a trvalá platnost Čapkovy moudrosti činí z tohoto díla obecně kulturní hodnotu

Základní myšlenkou románu je odsouzení subjektivistické víry v jednu - svou vlastní - pravdu, kterou chce jedinec nebo skupina lidí prosadit jako jedinou, absolutní
