The work of Thomas Mann, who is held to be the greatest of the German naturalistic novelists, is virtually unknown in English. This massive novel, Buddenbrooks, portrays the decay of a family through four generations and compares in method to Madame Bovary. He is, says the translator of this story, "a disciple of Schopenhauer and Nietzsche writing in the technique of Flaubert."
This is the German Edition.
In keeping with, as close as possible to the original German publication by Deutsche Buch-Gemeinschaft of 1909, the fonts used in the interior pages are "Bertholdr Mainzer Fraktur" and "Alte Schwabacher."
