About this Item

As a writer, Wieland (1733?1813) evolved and changed course multiple times. The Adventures of Don Sylvio is his => first novel, all previous endeavors having been poetry, and it dates from his post-pietistic stage during which his works show the influence of English and other writers. Clearly Cervantes is paramount here, but other influences that scholars have found shaping the characters of the romance are Fielding's Tom Jones, Richardson's Joseph Andrews, and even Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. Wieland's poetry of the late 1760s and early 1770s, offering light and graceful romances, had great appeal among the public. In Musarion, here in the anonymously published first edition, he explores the nature of love and advocates a rational unity of the sensual and spiritual. => An interesting work by this German Enlightenment writer. 8vo. 96 pp. Recent boards covered with German-style brown paper speckled with black. Title-page with its => memorable engraved vignette cut down and mounted, and browned from this with next three leaves browned also at edges; last leaf torn into text and repaired ham-handedly on verso, covering small portions of six letters and the tailpiece. Otherwise light age-toning and a small amount of foxing. A work not widely held. Bookseller Inventory # 34221
