A Genealogy of Morals. Poems.

NIETZSCHE Friedrich (1899)


Available to view at our Curzon Street shop.

Translated by William A. Hausemann [sic] and John Gray. Edited with a brief introduction by Alexander Tille. First UK edition. 8vo., original blue cloth decorated in blind and lettered in gilt. Uncut. London, T. Fisher Unwin.

The first English translation of Nietzsche's On the Genealogy of Morality, written as an extension and elaboration of his major work Beyond Good and Evil. The work is followed by a selection of Nietzsche's poetry written by 1882-1885, translated by the English poet John Gray. The present UK edition was preceded by the American edition of 1897.

Some modest damage to the spine, and a little used overall, with extensive contemporary manuscript annotations, mostly of marginal emphases and underlinings, by an unknown hand.
