Gesammelte Briefe in sechs Bänden (Collected Letters in Six Volumes)

Original brown cloth with gilt Rilke initials on covers, gilt lettering on spines in originals cream dustjackets, green and gray lettering on spine. Yellow top edges. Yellow ribbon markers. Rilke's letters are considered a substantial part of his work. This was realized after their first appearance. Rilke himself wrote: 'Since I, from certain years on, channeled part of my natural productivity into letters, I won't get in the way of publishing the letters preserved by the recipients (in case the Insel Publisher should propose it).' (Transl. from volume one). Text in German. Dustjackets with light wear along edges and some water staining on sunned spines. Minor wear to bindings with blocks lightly age-toned. Very good condition.
