A profusely illustrated edition of the play 'Faust', based off the German legend of the same name, written by Goethe, and illustrated by Willy Pogany.

The play is split into two parts, both parts are included in this volume. Goethe was already a literary success at the age of twenty-five, after the publication of his first book 'The Sorrows of Young Werther'.

Illustrated by Willy Pogany, a Hungarian illustrator who was a prolific illustrator of children's books. Collated, complete. Plate facing pages 80, and 109 are detached but present. Condition: In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, with some discoloration to the boars, heavier to the tail of the boards. Light fading to the rear joint and to the spine. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and extremities. Prior owner's ink inscription to the front pastedown, 'Kutton P/O, 11/12/1932, from . . . West Park Road, Mrs Moy'. Internally, binding is strained in places. Pages are bright and generally clean with scattered spots to the first and last few pages. Plate facing page 5 is working loose.

About this Item: George H. Doran Company, New York, 1925. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Pogany, Willy (illustrator). First Edition. First edition thus. No date; circa 1925. Large, 6 1/2" x 10" design. A Fine Art Edition of Goethe's Great Classic. Blue and purple floral motif to boards, red cloth spine wrap, gilt spine titles, some shelf wear, rub. Thick, rough-cut deckled pages very good. String-bind good; hinges reinforced. Art nouveau illustrator Willy Pogany is exhibited w/sixteen full-page, beautifully coloured, linen plates w/black & white decoration, vignettes and drawings throughout. Intriguing book design and craftsmanship. Fairly worn boards, clean very good pages, bind. This edition includes a preface by Roger Ingpen, Goethe's dedication, prologues for the theatre and in heaven, an appendix including Percy Blythe Shelley's translation of works by Goethe, and a special notes section. The Faustian legend has captured the imagination for centuries. In Goethe's Faust, the reader discovers the most famous expression of this old German tale. The classic story of a man who makes the deal with the devil and pays with his soul. The influence of this theme on literature cannot be understated. The second part of Goethe's masterpiece opens with Faust struggling to recover from the death of his beloved Gretchen. The quick-witted demon Mephistopheles soon persuades him to look beyond his sorrow and enter the world of politics and power, but the great scholar is still eager for new sensations, and asks Mephistopheles to reveal Helen of Troy to him in a vision. Overwhelmed by her beauty, Faust demands she be brought back from the underworld - but even this fails to bring him contentment, and his appetite for knowledge remains unsated. Completed a few months before Goethe's death, this rich and allusive work weaves together a wealth of diverse philosophical ideas and influences, reworking the medieval myth of Dr. Faustus and speculating upon the search for truth in the Age of Enlightenment. 210 pages. Insured post. Size: 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. Book. Seller Inventory # 018270
