Paris - Paul Ollendorff, 1909. Paris - Paul Ollendorff, 1909 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The firstpart of the early twentieth-century novel which won Rolland the Nobel Prize for Literature. Eleventh Edition. Jean-Christophe (19041912) isa novel in ten volumes by Romain Rolland, for which he received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915. The first four volumes are sometimes grouped as Jean-Christophe, the next three as Jean-Christophe Paris, and the last three as La fin du voyage ('Journey's End'). L'Aube ('Dawn') is the first volume, first published in 1904. Although Rolland first conceived the work in Rome in the spring of 1890, he began in earnest in 1903 after publishing a biography of Beethoven. A letter of 13 September 1902 reveals his plans: 'My novel is the story of a life, from birth to death. My hero is a great German musician who is forced by circumstances to leave when he is 16-18 years old, living outside of Germany in Paris, Switzerland, etc. The setting is today's Europe [. . . ] To spell it out, the hero is Beethoven in the modern world'. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally, excellent with just minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Age toning and some foxing to the endpapers but otherwise generally clean. Overall: VERY GOOD..
