Description:

Ex-library (Dunedin Public Library). Library stamps and markings. Some adhesive tape stains to reverse of dust wrapper and to boards. Dust wrapper rubbed at edges. Dust wrapper protected in archival mylar cover. "Beethoven, born into the era which had superseded Bach's had to fight for his faith in a world now dominated by doubt rather than by hope, and by reason rather than conviction [. . .] Professor Mellers believes, and forcefully argues, that by the end of his spiritually eventful life he had become a religious composer of a kind without precedent. This view of Beethoven is elaborated with constant reference to his music." - from dust wrapper blurb. ; viii, [2], 453 pages. Blue cloth boards. Page dimensions: 235 x 153mm. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Faber and Faber, 1983. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good +. 1st Edition. The dustwrapper of this lovely copy is unclipped and intact. It is also quite heavily browned/faded in parts. Not an ex-library copy, all that prevents the book itself from being "fine" is the presence of a previous owner's signature and a few other pencil marks on the ffep. Bookseller Inventory # 011933
