Who is to be Master of the World? [2nd, limited, impression 461/1000]

£95.00

Product description

Published 14 years after the death of Nietzsche, this book's subtitle "An Introduction to the Philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche" was the third volume by this British philosopher about his German predecessor, the others being "Nitezsche's Life and Works", and "Nietzsche and Art". Comprising a series of lectures, the topics covered include: 'The Immoralist', 'Superman', 'The Transvaluation of all Values', and 'The Moralist', the second of these being the longest. An introduction by Oscar Levy (author of "The Revival of Aristocracy" and other volumes) precedes the main body of the text.

Anthony Mario Ludovici MBE (1882–1971) was a British philosopher, sociologist and social critic, best known as a proponent of aristocracy, and a leading British conservative author in the early 20th century. He wrote on many subjects: art, metaphysics, politics, economics, religion, the differences between the sexes, race, health and eugenics. Having begun his career as an artist, painting and illustrating books, he was Auguste Rodin's private secretary for a while in 1906, but the two men parted company "to their mutual relief." He then turned to writing, (over 30 books as author, and many translations).

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844–1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, composer, poet, philologist, and Latin and Greek scholar whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history.

Our 2nd (limited) impression copy is in good condition for its age, bound in navy cloth with gilt title etc on front and spine (the latter slightly dulled). External wear is minor - bumped corners with some creasing, shelf wear to top & tail of spine, slight irregularities on covers, one or two lightish marks, and one slight scratch - with no frank damage. Inside, the binding is firm apart from slight weakness at pp.16-17 and 112-113) between gatherings. Free endpapers badly browned, and there is foxing throughout - heavier on the earlier and final pages, lessening to 'occasional' in the mid-portion of the book. Roughcut pages (trimmed tops). Publisher's catalogue at the back.
