Stuttgart und Tübingen: in der J.G. Cotta'schen Buchhandlung, 1827-1833. First edition. 55 volumes in 46, uniform 12mos in the so-called "Taschenausgabe"; contemporary marbled paper over vellum, with spine labels. Occasional rubbing, fine copies. Item #203809
Important edition of Goethe's works, including the final revision of Faust I and the first publication of Faust II. The first 40 volumes were overseen by Goethe and constitute the last revisions he made to his oeuvre; the last 15 volumes are edited from manuscripts in his literary estate. A further five volumes were added in 1842. An excellent set.
