Beautiful bound limited-edition copy of Rilke's sonnets with illustrations by Balthus.
"These fifty-five sonnets, published in 1923, three years before the poet’s death, describe his relationship to every aspect of creation, and view death as a continuation not a termination of life. In the original German with the superb English verse translation by Stephen Mitchell on facing pages. Balthus was encouraged by Rilke to dedicate his life to the arts. The two illustrations for this edition are a tribute to his childhood friend" (Publisher).
