About This Item
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1928. First edition of Kahlil Gibran's masterful retelling of the story Jesus of Nazareth. Octavo, original cloth, illustrations by the author. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "For Roy and D. from Howard and Bill With the blessing upon you four, and with the gratitude of Kahlil Gibran 1928." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare and desirable inscribed and in the original dust jacket. One of Gibran's most well-loved works over 70 years after its original publication, Jesus the Son of Man is a striking fictional portrait of Christ as seen through the eyes of his contemporaries. Depicting a variety of famous figures, from Mary Magdalen to Pontius Pilate, Gibran's spellbinding collection of narratives combines historical authority with the supreme eloquence that his admirers hold so dear. Fully conscious of the social, political, and religious realities of Palestine and Rome at the time, and at home with the local traditions and language, Gibran effortlessly evokes the spellbinding power of Christ's presence upon his associates. Presented in an attractive gift format and accompanied by Gibran's original artwork, this new edition allows Gibran's inspirational account of Christ to be read once more.
