        Die Geburt der Tragödie aus dem Geiste der Musik.

      Leipzig, E.W. Fritzsch, 1872. 8vo. Fine recent half morocco in old style, with five raised bands and gilding to spine. Brownspotting to title-page and last leaf (probably due to the fact that Schenk has been given the copy immediately, as it came, and has thus had it unbound), otherwise nice and clean. IV, 143, (1) pp.. Magnificent gift-copy from Nietzsche in the year of publication (inscribed in a contemporary hand to title-page: "Von Friedrich Nietzsche geschenkt 1872" - "Given by Friedrich Nietzsche in 1872") of the rare first edition, first issue, of Nietzsche's first work, his seminal "The Birth of Tragedy out of the Spirit of Music", which started his career and brought him immediate fame. The title-page furthermore bears the ownership signature of "Dr. Schenk" (signature a bit vague), to whom Nietzsche gave the present copy. Emil Schenk (1821 - 1902), from 1858 Mayor of Jena, was Nietzsche's uncle and an intimate friend of his father. The vast correspondence between Nietsche's father and Schenk, comprising ab. 250 known letters, all of great length, is seen as an important source of information for the Christian upbringing of the young Nietzsche, and Emil Schenk thus as an important figure in the founding Christianity of the genious Friedrich Nietzsche, whose views on Christianity have been seminal to the development of 19th and 20th century thought. Born on October 15, 1844, Nietzsche grew up in the small town of Röcken, near Leipzig. Many of the letters that we have between Schenk and Nietzsche's father, Ludwig, date from the Röckener years, where the Schenk couple, Emil and Emma, was doubtlessly the closest friends of Nietzsche's parents, Ludwig and Franziska. Nietzsche's father died as early as 1849, when Friedrich Nietzsche was merely five years old. After his death, when the family moved to Naumburg, his mother continued the close relationship with both Emil and Emma Schenk. Friedrich Nietzsche also remained closely connected to the best friend of his deceased father and many letters have been preserved between the two. It is therefore no wonder that his dear uncle, who represents a close tie to his early deceased father has apparently been one of the first to receive a copy of his first book, namely the present copy of "The Birth of Tragedy", given to him in the year of printing, 1872, which is quite unusual. Emil Schenk was of great importance to Friedrich Nietzsche's upbringing and continued to play a role in his life. It is furthermore while spending the summer of 1859 with him that Nietzsche has his defining near-death experience when nearly drowning, and it is Emil Scenk, who saves his life. The first edition of "Die Geburt der Tragödie" was printed in less than 700 copies (probably about 625), and is thus scarce."In his youth he became a disciple of Schopenhauer but his immediate friendship with Wagner was a decisive feature in Nietzsche's development, although the bitter hatred that later arose between them, in the words of Ernest Newman "poisened his pen as the thing itself had once poisened his soul." His principal work during the Wagner period, 1868-78, was "Die Geburt der Tragödie aus dem Geiste der Musik", 1872. In this he adopted a tragico-pessimistic conception of Greek civilization, like Burckhardt but contrary to Grote. This started his career as a critic of modern civilization based on disgust with imperial Germany, Christianity, bourgeois ethics, and so on." (PMM, p.224).Nietzsche was originally a philologist, and in this his first, and perhaps most interesting, work he discusses the history of the Greek tragedy, a discussion that was to become of great importance. He introduces a distinction between what he calls the Dionysian and the Apollonian principles, claiming that life always involves a struggle between these two elements, each battling for control over the existence of humanity. Due to the unnoticible mixture of these two elements, the Greek tragedy constitutes the highest form of art, and the human condition can be understood in full when understanding these tragedies. The work geniusly isolates and then combines the most important strands of German idealism and unites them at a new level. "The Birth of Tragedy..." represents an entirely new way of understanding philology as well as philosophy

In (2), Cohnheim set forth the doctrine of infarction as the result of occlusion of terminal arteries, overturning the previous theory that the phenomenon was due to capillary occlusion in the region involved.
