        :) well. seems number 2 is a new translation by zenny sadlon. i have the
        paul selver penquin translation (published in1931) and it is not a very good
        one. number 4, translated by cecil parrott, is another one to add to the
        confusion... than there is
        http://www.zenny.com/msiepage.html (but it seems it's same as nuber2...)

        i would give a try to number 2.

        the original is four books, (the last one unfinished) published in 1921-22.
        short biography of jaroslav hasek:

        enjoy.
