Condition: See description


Stara Zagora: Knigoizdatelstvo Vezni, 1920. Octavo (20 × 15 cm). Original decorative dust-wrapper, in imitation of pochoir, over blind wrappers; 40, [2] pp. Light wear and abrasions to the fragile wrappers; owner inscription to title; some foxing throughout; old bookstore stamp to rear wrapper. First Bulgarian translation of the Belgian Symbolist poet's poetry, selections from the 1889 collection "Serres chaudes" [Hothouses] and the 1896 volume "Douze Chansons." Translated, and with a two-page preface, by Geo Milev (1895-1925), the major Bulgarian literary critic and expressionist poet. Milev began his career as a translator and popularizer of Western poets and philosophers (such as Friedrich Nietzsche). He became a leading popularizer of modernist and avant-garde tendencies in Bulgaria and, by the early 1920s, his own work became increasingly political. In 1924 he began publishing the leftist journal "Plamak" (Flame). This is the fourth volume of a series titled "Books for bibliophiles" published by Milev's "Vezni" publishing house in the town of Stara Zagora. Not in Jacono. KVK, OCLC show a single copy at UCL.
