Brown endpapers with ML decoration. 468 pages + 1 page with playwright/translator information + 10-page list of Modern Library titles. ~ Book is in fine condition, clean, straight, no fraying or rubbing, with a mere hint of browning at head of spine. Interior paging clean and unmarked. Dust jacket is quite nice, with light age-browning along top edges of flap folds and front vertical flap fold, and minor rubbing mainly at head/tail of spine. Price-clipped, but with part of the "ML" still showing. Now protected in a clear archival cover. ~~ Strindberg, the "father" of modern Swedish literature, wrote prolifically during his four-decade career and, in addition to his fiction and poetry, produced more than 60 plays. This anthology contains a selection of eight plays which represent different periods and influences of his career, eg. Naturalism, Expressionism, psychological/occultism ("Inferno" period), and various dramatic styles he used, such as short drama, comedy, historical drama, and chamber plays. Plays included: The Father ; Miss Julie (includig the notable author's preface) ; Creditors ; The Stronger ; Playing With Fire ; Erik the Fourteenth ; Storm ; The Ghost Sonata. Each play is prefaced by a several-page Introduction by Michael Meyer, a noted Strindberg authority. At the back of the book there is a chronology of Strindberg's plays.

2 Strindberg, AugustThe Red Room
New York G. P. Putnam/Knickerbocker Press 1913 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 
Black cloth with gold spine titling on red block background, and front cover lettering on red block background with author's name in red at bottom of cover. 393 pages + 3 full-page ads for Strindberg works + 1 page ad for "De Profundis," 2nd ed., by Oscar Wilde. ~ Book is square and clean, age brittle at head/tail of spine with a thin piece chipped off of head. Corners only lightly worn. A small amount of the red background on spine rubbed. Front and rear hinges are fragile and show cracks in the paper, but hinges are still intact. Lacking dust jacket. ~~ The Red Room (originally published in Swedish in 1879) is possibly Strindberg's most famous work and has been called the first modern Swedish novel. It was also the book that first brought him fame. A satire on Stockholm society of the time, it is about a young man who leaves his civil service job to become an author and journalist. He soon finds nothing but corruption and hypocrisy in all areas of society--politics, business, publishing, etc. He despairs of the folly of his literary career, and joins a bohemian discussion group that meets regularly in the Red Room in Bern's Restaurant (the same locale where Strindberg himself often socialized with artists and authors). A nice intact copy of this classic piece of literature.
