About this Item

Two volumes, first editions. Cloth, 342 and 304 pps. with index at rear of Volume 2. Scarce. Brilliant biography of Russian composer Alexander Scriabin, and estatic but tortured man, an innovator of astounding originality who was the first to compose psychedelic "color music", to use the serialist "set", to create orgasmic symphonies and to use mysticism as a base for chordal complexes and schematic formulas. A fine, fresh, virtually as-new set retaining the tissue dust wrappers in excellent condition, the wrap-around band on Volume 1 and in the decorated slipcase which shows the merest hint of wear. In interesting association copy, from the personal library of former New York City Opera managing director Daniel Rule and with his ownership signature on the front paste down and again, as was his habit, on page 99 of the text.
