Printing Details

First UK edition. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 98pp.

Virtually every day in the fall of 1907, Rainer Maria Rilke returned to a Paris gallery to view a Cezanne exhibition. Nearly as frequently, he wrote dense and joyful letters to his wife, Clara Westhoff, expressing his dismay before the paintings and his ensuing revelations about art and life.


The book is in good condition but with tanning to the pages. The dustwrapper is good but with some chewing to the base of the spine.
