Cream-colored paper over boards, titled in green ink on front cover, printed wrappers bound-in; binding square and tight. Fine. This book contains Heine's meditation on the fate of the pagan gods after the rise of Christianity in Germany. Heinrich Heine was a German poet, journalist, essayist, and literary critic. He is best known outside Germany for his lyric poetry; his radical political views caused German authorities to ban many of his works, and he spent the last 25 years of his life as an expatriate in Paris. This volume is illustrated with woodcuts by Leopoldo Mendez (1902-1969), one of Mexico's most important graphic artists of the twentieth century, who also included socialist and Marxist themes in his work. This book was begun in Arthur Ellis' garage in 1929 and was finally finished by Grant Dahlstrom 33 years later.
