$28.00

German author Thomas Mann produced some of the best fiction of the 20th century. His works are epic in scope and imbued with rich cultural symbolism. He was deeply aware of the burgeoning philosophical ideologies of his time, and they found their way into his creative works. For his literary contributions, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1929. The Magic Mountain is his most timeless and widely celebrated text. It is a satirical bildungsroman set in pre-WWI Europe. Freudian and Nietzschean ideas percolate throughout the text. It is consistently cited as one of the best European and German novels of all time. This illustrated edition also pairs the text with Gonzalo Fonseca’s wonderful pen and ink drawings.

This illustrated edition is in fine condition. In the original faux brown leather boards, finely gilt stamped. Gilt spine label. Raised bands. Text block fine. Gilt edges. Decorative endpapers. Fonseca’s illustrations superb. With the publisher’s original bookplate sticker, blank and laid in.
