Reliure : Hardcover
Edition : 1st Edition
Octavo, original black cloth, front panel stamped in red, spine panel in red and gold, bottom edge rough trimmed. First edition in English. Novel of contemporary life in Stockholm, with allusions to absinth, artists and nihilists (though this is a 'serious' rather than a sensation novel). "Strindberg is remembered today mainly for his plays (such as 'Miss Julie' and 'The Ghost Sonata') but he wrote both fiction and nonfiction voluminously: his collected works in Swedish fill fifty-five volumes. A prototype of the tormented genius, his life twisted by poverty, alcoholism, insanity and romantic misery, he joins Ibsen and Ingmar Bergman to form a trio of Swedes who, like some Norse giants of old, could hold volcanic energies inside icy containers." - Robert Eldridge. ". some good judges consider his novels and short stories -- for example THE RED ROOM ('Roda Rummet'), MARRIAGE ('Giftas'), and THE PEOPLE OF HEMSO ('Hemsoborna') -- better than his plays." - L. J. Potts, Translator's Note to TALES (1930). Small private owner's bookplate affixed to front paste-down with light ghosting on front free endpaper, top edge of text block dusty, a bright, near fine copy. A scarce book. (#113156).
