Archy (Ark) was a series, edited by the Czech writer, translator and publisher, Josef Florian (1873–1941), published between 1926 and 1948. The present, 12th issue includes writings from Louis Massignon (1883–1962), Miguel de Unamuno y Jugo (1864–1936), and W. B. Yeats (1865–1939)

Extremely scarce, we could trace copies only in the holdings of the Czech National Library in Prague, and in the Moravian Library in Brno.
