About this Item

Translated by Claud Field. Full cloth binding. Binding soiled. Corners and spine ends frayed. Inside front cover and flyleaf have foxing or some kind of discoloration. Pages then brighten up but edges faintly turning yellow/brown from age. Front hinge showing separation signs. Strindberg turns his mind loose on Christianity, anti-Christianity, beauty and women and calls it "A Blue Book." To wit: "Eating is not beautiful, and to watch one's darling stowing away food in her beautiful mouth, which ought to speak beautiful words, smile bewitchingly, and purse up her tender lips to a kind of flower-bud which one inhales in a kiss - that may be downright repugnant! Therefore one is accustomed to hide this unseemly function under light conversation, and forgets what the beautiful mouth is occupied with." See T. E. Lawrence on that subject. Binding still tight.
