Silversnow Antiques and More

Circa: 1962
Publisher: Thomas Mann
Thomas Mann, 1962, 2 volumes in 1, illustrated with wood engravings, Felix Hoffmann, slip cover, very good condition. The story is set in a sanitarium in the Swiss Alps. Kastorpe is diagnosed with a light form of tuberculosis and has to spend over a year on mountain top in a health resort. The experience radically changes him. He turns into a thoughtful young man, studying sciences he never thought of studying before, thinking about life, philosophy and politics, arguing with his two highly educated friends, and wondering whether he will ever come back to the plain. It is a story about love unfulfilled, relation of death and sickness and about the general human condition.
