Der Archipelagus.

von Mengershausen, Cornelia (illus.)

California: Ettan Press, 1978. Octavo. 17pp. One of 90 copies. Six color engravings by von Mengershausen, all numbered and signed with the artist's monogram. These illustrations, with earthy colors washed over classical imagery - a bas-relief, an amphitheater, statuary, and geological outcroppings - emphasize Holderlin's belief in the connection between nature and man best exhibited in Athenian culture. Holderlin's hexameters likewise underscore this Classical harmony, as he crafts his own half lyric, half epic laudatory history of Athens. Bound in white boards with "H" embossed to front cover. Faintest bumping to upper corner, else fine. Lacking slipcase. Item #28620

Price: $250.00
