DER GEISTERSEHER AUS DEN PAPIEREN DES GRAFEN O ***. Friedrich von Schiller, Hanns Heinz Ewers.

DER GEISTERSEHER AUS DEN PAPIEREN DES GRAFEN O ***. München: Georg Müller, 1922. Octavo, pp. [1-4] 1 [2] 3-530 [531: blank] [532-536: publisher ads], original pictorial light blue paper-covered boards, front cover printed in black, blue and violet, spine panel printed in black, top edge stained blue. First edition. A presentation copy with a signed inscription on the front free endpaper by Ewers to Sam Franko, a noted American violinist and composer. A reissue of Schiller's DER GEISTERSEHER (THE GHOST SEER), an unfinished epistolary novel published in book form in Germany in 1789, that adds Ewers' own conclusion to the story and his fourteen-page afterword, presumably explaining of his method and motivations. At least two continuations or conclusions to Schiller's tale in English have been published, but Ewers' conclusion appears to be the only one composed in German. It was not well received by critics. Bloch (2002) 932. Apart from mild age-darkening to the spine panel, a fine copy. (#143525).
