Faust was Goethe's most celebrated creation, with international editions, films and books. This is a complete set of the 26 engravings Moritz Retzsh produced, and it has no words in it, no printing details, no publisher. What it does have is a fabulous set of the original plate pulls, complete with plate marks. Friedrich August Moritz Retzsch was a German painter, draughtsman, and etcher. This is, in a way, a fine example of what is now called the graphic novel. The 26 etched pictures tell the story, and words are not needed. In Germany there were many such books without words, and this one, in particular, influenced the English Pre Raphaelites. This volume is in its original binding, with a leather spine which turns around to the marbled cover boards. The corners are leather also, and the spine has five subtly raised bands and no title. A much poorer copy of this was featured in the exhibition of Pre Raphaelites at Tate Britain. This is by no means a fine copy. It has been used, and looked at, probably a great deal over the last 200 years or so, and the leather is worn, the marbled covers are patinated, and there is a mixture of names and an inscription on the front end paper. It is rare. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-9078502109
