About this Item

Small octavo, pp. [1-11] 12-252 [253-256: blank] [note: first and last leaves used as front and rear paste-downs], original decorated maroon boards, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. Novelization of the 1926 UFA silent film scenario by Hans Kyser. A masterly "film version of the myth about the man who sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for absolute knowledge, directed by F. W. Murnau (who directed Nosferau in 1922). A technical tour de force, an ambiguous moral lesson, and a chilling stylistic display, Faust also boasts the formidable acting of Emil Jannings [as Mephistopheles]., perhaps the greatest actor of the silent era." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 149. Bleiler (1978), p. 161. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). Text block printed on pulp paper and therefore age-darkened as usual, a fine copy in fine four-color wraparound pictorial dust jacket with illustration based on a film still. A sharp copy. (#100961).
