W.G. Sebald Collection, circa 1985-2017

Sold

Hardcover. A comprehensive collection consisting of 52 German, British, and American editions of W.G. Sebald’s major books, and over 150 related works: including essays and reviews by Sebald, critical studies about Sebald, and both literary and critical works inspired by Sebald.

First inspired by Sebald’s second novel *The Emigrants* in 1996, a collector set about gathering uncorrected proofs and first editions of all of Sebald’s books published in Germany, Britain, and America. Over time, as the scope of the collection grew broader, it grew to include other primary and secondary materials in English, German, and other languages, such as periodicals and anthologies containing works by or about Sebald, and critical studies of Sebald’s work, including monographs, essays, CDs and DVDs, and also catalogs and related materials for several museum and gallery exhibitions that were inspired by Sebald’s life and career.

An historically important and unique collection that brings together over 50 early and scarce editions of Sebald’s works, including three signed by Sebald, and wide array of related scholarly and popular works and materials, including books signed by Susan Sontag, Cynthia Ozick, and others.
