KATALOG DER RILKE-SAMMLUNG RICHARD VON MISES
Obermüller and Herbert Steiner
First edition of this bibliography of the works of Rilke. The Austrian writer Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) is remembered as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century for his emotional, insightful, sensual poetry. He answered his calling at an early age: his first volume of poetry was published when he was only twenty years old. Though he was born in Prague, he spent his life traveling and working all over Europe--in Italy, Spain, Switzerland and France.
This book catalogues the items in the collection of Richard von Mises (1883-1953), the Austrian mathematician and scholar. He taught in Strausburg, Dresden and Berlin before complications arising during World War Two compelled him move to the United States, where he accepted a post teaching at Harvard University. Hugely influential in the field of mathematics and hydro- and aerodynamics, von Mises also fostered his interest in philosophy and poetry. In particular, he was recognized as one of the leading authorities on Rilke. This bibliography contains over 1,700 entries of early and rare printings of Rilke's works, as well as translations, periodicals, recordings, sources, and pieces on Rilke. Frontispiece is a tipped-in color portrait of Rilke from a painting. Loose bookplate indicates that this copy was purchased from the collection of H.P. Kraus.
