Goethe, Johann Wolfgang. Faust: Nach altester Aufzeichnung. Frankfurt am Main: "Der Goldene Brunnen" 1948. 126p + 7 pls. by Karel Svolinsky, some in color. Very good paper-covered boards (spine and strip on front cover lightly faded, corners lightly shelf-bumped). No. 106 of 400 copies. ** A beautifully printed letterpress edition of this early version of Faust, which is known as the Urfaust. It is taken from a transcription of Goethe's manuscript made in 1776. The colophon states that this is the first use of the typefaces Georg-Hartmann-Antiqua and -Kursiv, designed by Heinrich Jost, who also designed the book. The book was published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Georg Hartmann's taking over the Bauer type foundry in Frankfurt. The large offset plates reproduce Svolinksy ink-and-wash drawings. Accompanied by a 16-page text, "Die Entstehung von Goethes 'Urfaust'" by Ernst Beutler, laid in. A lovely edition, suitable for a gift. N° de réf. du libraire 5697

Description de la librairie : I¿ve been selling and appraising GOOD HORSE AND ART BOOKS since 1973, first by mail as Blue Rider Books, and since 1983 in the full-time open shop that I share with H.L. Mendelsohn (whose books are also on ABE). We¿d love to have you visit the second-oldest secondhand bookshop in Cambridge, just outside Harvard Square (open Tuesday-Saturday noon to 6, or by appointment). If you can¿t make it, go to www.bledsoebooks.com for many (but by no means all) of my books. My inventory of new, used, and rare equestrian books is one of the largest in the U.S., with special depth in Paul Brown, 19th-century books, dressage, and ephemera (paper items). I love to seek out the obscure, the uncommon, and the overlooked. Harvey Mendelsohn and I also offer a room full of out-of-print scholarly titles on the fine and applied arts, especially art history, architecture and planning, book arts, gardens, 20th-century ceramics, photography, and exhibition catalogues. And you¿ll also find some children¿s books, cookbooks, titles in cultural history and philosophy, and other general books. Many of our books never make it online, so if you¿re looking for items you don¿t see here, please phone or e-mail. Then maybe you, too, like hundreds of happy customers over the years, will say, ¿You have it? YOU¿VE MADE MY DAY!¿
