Translated by William A. Hausemann [sic] and John Gray. Edited with a brief introduction by Alexander Tille, Vol. 1 of the Works of Friedrich Nietzsche. First English edition. 8vo., original blue cloth decorated in blind and lettered in gilt. Uncut. London, T. Fisher Unwin.

Preceded by the American edition of 1897, with a cancel title-page reflecting MacMillan's withdrawal from the project, handing over to Fisher Unwin. Gray translated the poems, which occupy pp. 223-282. The single leaf of advertisements at rear suggests that in some tortured logic, the edition was to have been published in roughly reverse order, but in fact only regressed from Volume XI to Volume VIII, omitting volume IX. Sewell, Two Friends, Anderson Bibliography, 30. 

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.
