First edition

Stefan ZWEIG Balzac

Stefan ZWEIG


Albin Michel, Paris 1950, 14x21,5cm, broché.

First edition of the French translation, one of 80 numbered copies on vellum Renage, only leading copies.
Back and flat slightly and marginally insolated without gravity, otherwise beautiful copy.
"The Grand Balzac, like Zweig, designated in his familiar life his enterprise-to distinguish it from earlier attempts of lesser importance-was, according to the wishes of the author, to become his capital work, his magnus opus . He had been working on the manuscript for ten years. He wanted to include the sum of his experience as a writer and his knowledge of life, Balzac seemed to him the largest subject accessible, and strictly speaking, predestined to his particular talent. (Richard Friedenthal, editor's notes in Balzac ).
