About this Item

2 volumes. Early edition in English. 8vo, publisher’s original diced purple cloth, lettered in git on the spines. xi, 397; [4], 388. A fine and excellent set in extremely fresh condition. The spine panels evenly mellowed down to a honey gold colour. RARE PRINTING IN ORIGINAL PUBLISHER’S CLOTH. In WILHELM MEISTER Goethe again took up the novel form. It is full of not only realistic detail, but as well, poetic allegory. Wilhelm Meister was considered not so much "an illustration of the author's life-philosophy as a lay-figure on which he demonstrates his views. [It] is a work of extraordinary variety, ranging from the poetic romanticism. Of all Goethe's works, this exerted the most immediate and lasting influence on German literature; it served as a model for the best fiction of the next thirty years" (Britannica).
